Peer Pressure and racism within Germany During the Holocaust German people were always happy, right? Wrong! Peer pressure and racism within Germany played a huge role in the German participation in state-sponsored genocide and murder. The peer pressure from Hitler and the Nazis got families to support the Nazis and pressures German men to join the Nazis to help kill more Jews.

Due to the paranoia and blame throwing of German leaders, the Jews were linked to many events that hurt the national pride of the Germans. German national pride also led to a view of Jews as inferior, inhuman beings compared to the German “Master Aryan race,” and the national and cultural unity against the Jews that Hitler assisted in creating also strengthened German pride. National pride also blinded Germans to the atrocities committed by the Nazi Party against minorities, mainly the Jews, and even made the Germans feel these acts were necessary to Germany’s survival.
