Original Title: Diccionario crítico de mitos y símbolos del nazismo

With rigorous analysis and literary skill, Rosa Sala delves into the darkest depths of National Social- ism. It is important to face this horror in order to acknowledge its atrociousness, without philistinism or intellectual abdication. Condemnation is not enough to ensure that it will never happen again. True bravery lies in understanding.
