I am currently writing a large History essay entitled 'How far are the origins of Nazism philosophical' and a small part of which examines Nietzsche's possible influence on the Nazi party. Since doing my reasearch i have obviously found that the Nazis were infact wrong to cite Nietzsche as an influence.
I have analysed some similarities between Nietzsche's philosophies and the ideology of the Nazi party, however i was wondering if anybody knew of a history of some sort describing Nietzsche's link to Nazi ideology. Resources are very hard to find that explicitly link Nietzsche to the Nazis (as nearly all historians and philosophers agree the Nazis misused nietzsche) therefore a portion of my essay rests on mere comparisons between (for example) the violent actions of the nazi party and will to power, etc. This sadly is not solid enough fact, and if anybody had any information they could help me with at all it would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thank you very much.
