Why Did They Follow Hitler?

The Psychology of National Socialism
How could it be that millions of people – including intelligent and well-educated people – became loyal followers of Hitler? What drove those “perfectly typical” men and women to support his regime? How did the power mechanisms in the Nazi state function? Based on unique sources – interviews with former Nazis – Stephan Marks works out answers to these questions. Based on unique sources – interviews with former Nazis – Stephan Marks works out answers to these questions. His central thesis is that National Socialism did not aim to convince people intellectually, but to engage them emotionally; it counted on the narcissistic neediness and dependency of its followers, on their feelings of shame, their traumatic war experiences and their early childhood fantasies of salvation. The most disquieting aspect of his results is that all these emotions can still be exploited today.
