A term used in Nazi Germany to describe the ideal “master race” of Caucasians. A non-scientific category, the idea of the Aryan race was mostly defined by what it was not; Aryans were not Slavic, and they were not Jewish. They were generally stereotyped as being blonde, blue eyed, physically fit, and white.
