What did the Nazis stand for in 1928?

Extracts from this document...


What did the Nazis stand for in 1928? National Socialism: the Nazis were extreme nationalists who were loyalty to their country. They wanted racial purity, equality and state control of the economy. Hitler wanted to nationalize large industries and businesses. Although his party was named the National Socialist German Worker's Party (NSDAP), they were not quite socialist. They named themselves this way in order to attract the middle class' attention, without having to make any policy to support this. However, they wanted to provide provisions for old age pensioners.
