The Nazis, or National Socialist German Worker's party, gained power in Germany in the 1930s by lies and Propaganda. It had a racist ideology that genocide and war crimes were acceptable in order to get rid of racial groups they did not like. They were responsible for the event known as the Holocaust. Hitler, their leader, brainwashed the people to believe that 'non-ayrans' were subhuman and scapegoated them for the country's economic problems. When Hitler and the Nazis came to power they turned Gemany from a democracy to a fascist police state. Because Hitler led the Nazis to believe that non-ayrans, especially Jews, were subhuman, it was easier to lead them to massacre trhe Jews and believe it was right to send innocent Jews and others to forced labor camps, torture them and murder them. In World War II, the United States, Britain, and the USSR and many other countries fought against Germany and its allies and managed to remove the Nazis from power in Germany.

Today Neo-Nazis, tend to belong to hate groups and commit hate crimes. They will deny that the Holocaust ever happened, in order to convince more people to support them. They hate Jews, black people, the disabled and homosexuals. If they are in a powerful position at their jobs, they might practice discrimination, only hiring straight, non-Jewish, non-disabled white people.

The symbol of the Nazis is the swastika.
