Article

The German term Volksgemeinschaft, normally translated as ‘national community’ or ‘people’s community’, expresses an ideal image of a harmonious and united society. The term draws on German sociologist Ferdinand Tönnies’s (1855–1936) interpretation of Gemeinschaft as a social model characteristic of families, neighbors and small communities, in which relationships are based on selflessness, solidarity and common values.
