Miller on Nazi Germany and American Indians

Robert J. Miller, Arizona State University Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, has posted Nazi Germany and American Indians:
In the early 1930's, Nazi scholars, lawyers, jurists, and party officials were heavily influenced by United States law when they were developing racial policies and laws concerning Jewish people. Research demonstrates that when Nazis were turning their ideas into legislative proposals and laws that they were also carefully studying federal Indian laws and American state laws that discriminated against American Indians.
