What was the environmental impact of the Third Reich?

    The term “ecology” was first used by German Ernst Haeckel, whose shared Hitler’s racist views though he wrote widely at the turn of the 1900s. Haeckel believed humankind was no different from the rest of the natural world, and that the laws of nature in large part governed civilization. These were radical views for his time and did influence the Third Reich. Hitler himself is quoted as saying “As in everything, nature is the best instructor,” though the war he helped instigate had a profound negative impact on the environment, as all wars do.
