The war in the east was not the same as the war in the west. It was a war of ideology, Fascism against Communism, and twisted racism, Aryan against Slav. Hitler and many of the other Nazi leaders believed that they were fighting to produce a master race that would dominate Europe.

In particular, the Slavic peoples of Russia were considered subhuman and were to be enslaved and exterminated in order to create living space for “pure” Aryans.
