Rosenberg, Alfred



Alfred Rosenbergís career envelops nearly the entire National socialism in Germany. He was the party ideologist who later held a few more or less important posts in the Nazi government. Rosenberg is considered the person who has developed the essentials points of the Nazi ideology and put them to paper.

Rosenberg built an ideological foundation under the abolition of the Treaty of Versailles, the National socialist racial theory, the persecution of the Jews, the notion of Lebensraum (space to live) and the ban on degenerate art. His rejection of Christianity in favour of a "Nordic religion of the blood" could not count on the cordial agreement of Hitler but in real life, Rosenbergís ideas of a new religion had an influence on Nazi policy which must not be underestimated.

Rosenbergís interests lay mainly in the sphere of religion and philosophy. He lacked the charisma and political cunning of other Nazi leaders. In the Third Reich, he therefore occupied a more or less isolated position among the high ranking N.S.D.A.P. officials.
