Nazi is short for National Socialist: it is another sect in the godless religion of Marxism. Hitler said “Socialist Germany is at war with the Capitalist West, run by plutocrats, not the people.” Yes, he worked a dark thread of Racism into the German version of Socialism, but at its heart, it was the same as Stalin’s Communism. If you focus only on the racial policies of the Reich, there is a risk you will ignore the core problem with Nazism: that it is basically Socialism, with its complete lack of personal freedoms, the subjugation of the individual to the State, the State control of everything, and the terrible error of Central Planning. It will never, and can never work. If Hitler had regarded all races as equal and had built a multi-racial Reich, it would still have been an evil totalitarian dictatorship based on the failed theories of Marx the Madman. This is the main thing wrong with Hitler, Mao, Stalin and Pol Pot: Socialism plus absolute power = Fascism.
