    Post Nazi Racial Characteristics ?

    As we know, not all Nordics have blond hair. Were the Nazis most interested in people who had blond hair/blue eyes, or in people whose facial characteristics were Nordic?

    "Aryan" also refers to light brown hair and brown or blue eyes I believe.

    Eyes, hair color and height were the most important characteristics.

    Facial features just secondly so far as I know.

    There were many specialists about such issues, but in reality f.e. for the SS the features I said above were more important.
    One thing might be that it was easier and by everybody to determine.

    But if it was about Jews or foreigners facial characteristics were very important. If it was about to determine if someone was Jewish or able to be include in the Germanic collective (Eindeutschungsfähigkeit) they looked often even more in facial characteristics but it often depended on the local medicine or anthropologist.

    But maybe some others know even more about this issue.

    What were the criteria for getting into the SS? Didn't one have to me more Nordic than the rest of the population, and have traceable German ancestry back a few hundred years? Did they only take Halstatt Nordics, or were UP types allowed as well?

    The question is if you ask about the SS at the beginning or the Waffen-SS during the war.

    Only for the SS in the narrower sence the criteria were really hard.

    It was said they should be "of predominant Nordic character".

    They must be absolutely healthy, very fit and relatively intelligent.
    At the beginning they must have had f.e. absolutely good teeth.

    They should be fair (usually blond and blue eyed), tall, Nordic built (just think about fit again = only Leptosomic and Athletic build persons).

    Sometimes they looked at headshape and facial features too but the things above were more important so far as I know.
    Dalofaelids f.e. were quite often in the early SS.

    Nordics in Scandinavian „Hallstatt” type are relatively rare in Germany so such criteria were impossible.

    If you look at Arno Brecker’s sculptures you will see that his ideal Nordic is rather closer to Guenther’ Nordic type then “Hallstatt”

    They tend more to a "Troender" like type and Dalofaelid variants.

    BTW his name was Breker.

    Here is a good side about this great artist:
