Common people of Germany can be put into 3 categories based on their views about Nazism:
1. Those who believed in Nazism ideas & supported it. They marked the houses of Jews & spread anger & hatred against other communities including Jews.
2.Those who opposed it actively. They had to face the wrath of Nazi govt. & even death sentences.
3.Those who were passive onlookers & apathetic witnesses. They were scared to act or to protest. Pastor Niemoeller , a resistant fighter wrote about this attitude of apathy among Germans to let atrocities to occur in their neighbourhood.
