After a brief review of the main interpretatives trends of Shoah, the article underlines how, although the Mommsen’s study shows well the articulate realization of the extermination of the jews, nevertheless it doesn’t explain clearly the link between Shoah and Nazi ideology. The author asserts infact that in the Mommsen’s work is completely underestimated the fundamental role of Nazi ideology and its aspect of secular religion to understand the extermination of the jews. Using again the George L. Mosse’s thesis, the author argues that Nazism seized the power thanks to its messianic ideology, which considered the reality like an apocalyptical struggle between the Good (the Nazi ideology) and the Evil (the Jewish race). Therefore the fate of the jews was marked since 1933 and the war provided the background to realize the final reckoning.
