The 1939-1942 Nazi victories emboldened them to build an Aryan
society by the mass killings of Jews, Gypsy's, and the
mentally-and-physically impared. While they brutally killed some 8
million in the concentration camps, their idea of an Aryan society
died under the flames of Berlin when it was conquered by the Soviet
troops who were avenging Hitler's invasion of their country and
Germany's unconditional surrender to the Allies.

Racial considerations played an important role in how conquered peoples were treated in the Nazi New order. German civil administrations were established in Norway, Denmark, and the Netherlands because the Nazis considered their peoples Aryan, racially akin to the Germans and hence worthy of more lenient treatment. "Inferior" Latin peoples, such as the occupied French, were given military administrations. By 1943, however, as Nazi losses continued to multiply, all the occupied territories of northern and western Europe were ruthlessly exploited for material goods and workers for Germany's war needs.
