Summary
Provides a critical look at the origins, history, and dissemination of the infamous Heil Hitler salute in Nazi Germany from its compulsory adoption in 1933, assessing its meaning in terms of a symbol of loyalty to the Nazi regime, as a means of vesting Hitler with a divine aura, and as a ritual of consent that paved the way for the erosion of social morality
