    I have an essay due soon titled "Account for the roles of ideology and pragmatism in the Final Solution of the Jewish question". Do you have any ideas what a plan could be?? And what can pragmatism mean in this context? :confused: Thanks!!

    i think you should pretty much focus on the role of ideology, hitlers views on social darwinism, aryan race ...., i cant think of anything pragmatic about the final solution as it was based solely on ideology.

    I would disagree with that, granted the main reason for the holocaust was ideology and the attitudes of hitler, but what I believe the question is trying to tease out of you is for you to say whether extermination was the only real solution to hitler's attitudes, therefore the pragmatic solution. Morally its a horrible question because it is asking you to weigh up the pragmatic approach to genocide, which is horrible.
