Hitler believed that the pure German people, the Aryans, were the master race. Hitler said that one of the reasons that Germany lost the First World War was that the German race had been weakened through Aryans marrying non-Aryans. Therefore if Germany was to become strong again, the Nazis had to ensure the purity of the Aryan race. This view of Germans as the master race was encouraged by the use of healthy, ‘pure’ Aryans in Nazi propaganda posters.
