The Nazi leadership was the driving force for the events of the Holocaust and was well known for its effective use of communication to persuade and influence. In the present study, a large sample of primary source texts from the Nazi Party was analyzed using LIWC2015. Results reveal important social psychological markers occurring within the Nazi leadership during their rise and fall from power.
