German Propaganda Poster for the Hitler Youth Organization

Nazi pseudo-science proclaimed the "Aryan race" to be the superior, culture producing race. Of the Aryans, the fair Nordic type was considered best.

"Adolf Hitler has led the German people to the realization that the Nordic race is the most creative, valuable race on earth. It has determined their nature, their culture, and their history. Therefore, caring for the valuable Nordic blood is their most important task. Each of us has a role. A consciousness of our proud ancestry must be the guiding force in our behavior. We do not want to be the last of a millennia old advanced culture that ends with us, rather 'members of an unending chain extending from our most ancient ancestors to our distant grandchildren' (Heinrich Himmler)."
