Two dictators of the 20th century, Adolf Hitler at the front of Germany in Europe and Gamal Abdel Nasser leading Egypt in North Africa, were widely known for their nationalist tendencies at exerting their power. Granted, both were remembered for their contrasting methods of ruling. However, both had in focus a renowned interest in the defense and glorification of their race: Hitler saw in theAryans the supreme race, the ones destined to rule the world.

While both may have covered a different degree of relevance in a global scale, these figures found their way into the annals of history for the particular pride they boasted for their nation
Speaking of nations and ethnicities,Hitler and Nasser shared a boundary that extended up to their common rivals: the Jews. While both rulers had a different reason to stand against this nation, they both found in that enmity their basis for the ideals that would govern their perspective and thought.
