節目介紹 Introduction

這部特輯研究了納粹意識形態的根源,以及第三帝國如何利用扭曲的歷史和宗教來強化其權力,並驅使德國走向戰爭和民族滅絕。納粹認為雅利安是優等民族的信仰,將第二次世界大戰描述為雅利安德國人與「次等民族」——俄羅斯斯拉夫人,尤其是猶太人——之間的戰爭,這一信仰在大屠殺中顯現了最可怕的後果。

This special examines the roots of Nazi ideology, and how the Third Reich used twisted versions of history and religion to bolster its power and help drive Germany towards war and genocide. The Nazi belief in the Aryan Master Race characterized World War II as a war between the Aryan Germans and the "lesser races"-- the Russian Slavs and especially the Jews--a belief which reached its most terrible consequence in the Holocaust.
