Nazi

Nazi a member of the National Socialist German Workers' Party, formed in Munich after the First World War. It advocated right-wing authoritarian nationalist government, and developed a racist ideology based on anti-Semitism and a belief in the superiority of ‘Aryan’ Germans. Its leader, Adolf Hitler, who was elected Chancellor in 1933, established a totalitarian dictatorship, rearmed Germany in support of expansionist foreign policies in central Europe, and so precipitated the Second World War.
Nazi salute a gesture or salute in which the right arm is inclined upwards, with the hand open and the palm down.
