A "Nazi" was a member of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, shortened from the German name for the group: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei.

Nazism "was the ideology and practice of the Nazi Party and of Nazi Germany. It was a unique variety of fascism that incorporated biological racism and antisemitism. Nazism presented itself as politically syncretic, incorporating policies, tactics and philosophies from right- and left-wing ideologies; in practice, Nazism was a far right form of politics" (Wikipedia).
