Was Hitler a racist?
Was Hitler a racist? Is the view that he was guilty of genocide based on a misunderstanding? Merely to ask such questions is likely to arouse hostility and the suspicion that another attempt at writing revisionist history is being launched. But what if the terms ‘racist’ and ‘genocide’ are themselves key concepts in a revisionist version of history? What if it could be shown that they belong to a revision of history so huge and so successful that it is beyond the imagination of even the most extreme of Hitler’s apologists?
