    I don't know, we'll never truly know because the west beat them into non existence, Yes from a modern moral perspective their intentions were evil, tho they thought that the west's intentions were evil, who knows says the aliens.

    There is only one answer to some questions. For example, is the sun hot? Yes. Is chocolate made of duck meat? No. The answer to your question is no and always will be no.

    The Nazis made no secret of their intentions, which ranged from deplorable to horrendous.

    Some of them may have believed they were doing the right thing, but not the people at the top.  And it's almost the opposite.  They were fairly efficient in their mass murder and persecution, although militarily they weren't very good because Hitler had a "no retreat" policy which wasn't always prudent.

    Edit: and also their racial purity ideas would have reduced healthy genetic diversity in the population and led to major health problems, even in the next generation.  Not always:  Anni-Frid Lyngstad of ABBA is one example of their breeding programme and seems to be entirely healthy, but an alleged blond twin programme in South America has done quite badly.

    No, they had bad intentions and went about it in the worst way they could think of.

    No, they wanted to enslave the world, and eliminate millions of people who were not members of their ethnic ideal.

    Nazi management always had bad intentions. The German people lost their chance to hold them accountable. The Jewish population in Nazi Germany was only about 1%. Most Germans were indifferent about the fate of the Jews. That was a mistake. Why are you trying to find redemption in one of the most evil regimes in history?

    Interestingly, if the Soc Dems (libs) and communists had found common ground, they could have prevented Hitler's rise. But Moscow sent strict orders not to collaborate w/ the libs.

    I think it is almost axiomatic that evil people tend not to view themselves as evil.  I mean, sure, there are some serial killers who know they're bad but feel compelled to do it anyway, but most evil people aren't like that.

    Instead, they convince themselves that they're doing good for THEIR group or something like that.  Hitler and his devotees saw history and the world as a nationalistic competition between races.  It's a dog-eat-dog world, and to Hitler he was just sticking up for HIS team.  

    Their objective was evil.  Their means were evil.  They were evil.  Let there be no doubt about it.  But they had twisted their own worldview into a place where they didn't see it that way.
