Very good choice of question, imo, though I don't really like the inclusion of Wagner. As for the Holocaust question, you really should accept Shoah and Final Solution.

It's a term that strongly reflects Hitler's view. I mean, do we really want to call it "Final Solution"?

It was part of his public image campaign, which claimed he abstained from sex, meat, and alcohol. Basically living like a monk totally dedicated to his work for the German people. None of it was true, of course.

Technically the Indian symbol is the Swastik, not Swastika. Also, the Swastik is an Aryan symbol that you can find in ancient rome, India, Iran, Nordic states etc.

"Nazi" is not the name of the party. It is short for Nationalsozialismus which is an ideology. The party's name is "Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei" (NSDAP)

Little reminder: nazism should not be mistaken as similar to communism, capitalism, feudalism, colonialism, islam, christianity or whatever ideology or religion in the name of which people have been killed. When we use the word "dictator" for nazis and non-nazis we might do just that... Only nazism has hatred and annihilation of entire social groups in the epicentre of its ideology. That should be pointed out, I think...

Nazism is no different than the other ideologies you have listed. Nazism has the economic aspect, similar to capitalism, communism, etc., as well as the social/ethnic aspect. Islam and Christianity both advocate killing certain groups of people -- infidels, gays, wives who sleep around, people who worship other gods, I could go on and on. The idea of a homogenous ethnostate being the foundation of a stronger community than a multi-cultural one goes back to the ancient greeks, as many philosophers penned essays to that tune. Hitler's ideas weren't extraordinary.

I thought Hitler did not actually write Mein Kampf but dictated it to Rudolf Hess. Also do we really have concrete evidence to suggest Hitler was a vegetarian?

^ Actually we have proof of the opposite. There is testimony in the Nuremberg files that his favorite meal was some sort of liver pate or paste.

The party wasnt and has never been called Nazi, his party was called NSDAP. Nazi was a nickname made up by their oppononents ( look it up, it allready had the meaning of idiot, and worked out nicely as an abbreviation similar to sozi). Making that the answer would be saying treehuggers or something as the official name of a party. The derogatory nickname has become common use in the english language, so there might be something to say for including it as a type (I dont agree though) but definitely NOT the shown answer, as that was simply Not the name of his party.

I am sure on an american politic/history quiz you wouldnt have "republitards" as the official name of a party. Because, that is not the official name. (What people choose to call them is completely irrelevant in this case, unless you make it a totally different question, like how is hitler group usually referred to)

I think you should accept furher instead of fuhrer because of my bad spelling and I always thought it was pronounced "furher"
