FORTY YEARS AFTER: The Nazi Heartland

Rodman, Selden
May 1979
National Review;5/11/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 19, p622
The article considers whether the European nations involved in World War II should feel guilty that they have contributed to the promotion of Nazism and antisemitism during Adolf Hitler's time. According to the author, every country that Hitler penetrated had discovered a sense of racism just lying under almost every nation's surface. The author also added that the absence of resistance movements until the tide had turned late in 1942 emphasized every nation's role in the oppression.
