comment If the nazi is a far-right party, why is it socialist?
As @Anixx puts right, the "German Worker's Party" (DAP) has been a far-right organization since its very beginning in that it assembled anti-semites and revanchist anti-republicans. It was founded by members of the occultist, ethno-nationalist "Thule Society", a cover organization of the conspirative elitist "Germanic Brotherhood", which several of later Nazi leaders were members of, including Streicher, Rosenberg and Hess. Even though the Strasser brothers propagated a derivative of socialist ideas, they were nationalists, anti-semites and anti-communists, and had little internal influence.

comment When was the term “Nationality” first came into use? How did ancient civilizations refer to themselves? By ethnicity?
@Drux, thanks for your comment. Of course my answer is far from satisfying the question entirely, but maybe I could give a hint on its aspect that I felt was the most interesting one for the OP. Also, I made an edit to have the last part less insignificant.

comment Aside from the Jews, did Hitler have a final solution plan for other ethnicities/races in the Third Reich?
@kubanczyk, even in totalitarian theory, which in fact is an agenda rather than a proper theory, much more reasonable criteria has been proposed (and proven useless). The politics of the nazi party adapted pre-existing antisemitism, which was constitutive of german identity decades before the nsdap was founded. Eliminatory antisemitism had been the motivation to found parties even in the end of the 19th century. Declaring the nazi movement could have picked any other group apart from the jewish, like "people who owned cats", is just irresponsibly wrong.
