Race as Religion
Alfred Rosenberg conceived the ideology of national socialism. His book, Der Mythus des 20. Jahrhunderts (The Myth of the Twentieth Century) addresses the major themes that define his national socialist ideology. Rosenberg sought to provide the rationale for the revival of a religion pledged to the regeneration of the Nordic race, and then occupied himself with the religious sentiment of Jews. He was convinced that the Jews were a threat to humanity, arguing that Christianity had been corrupted by Jews to suit their ends. This chapter argues that there is persuasive evidence that the ideas of Rosenberg served as a rationale at the founding of the political movement which brought Adolf Hitler to power.
