Who are the Aryans
The term "Aryan race" comes from the word "Aria", which translated from the ancient Persian means "decent, respectable, noble". This pseudo-scientific term was promoted in the 19th century by authors who created racial theories. Subsequently, it was widely used by German national socialists.
Originally, the Aryan nation meant one of the subtypes of the Caucasian race, which is better known under the name "Nordic race". For the first time this term was used by Joseph Gobineau in 1855 year. In his book "essay on the inequality of human races" he described the Nordic subtype as members of the white race, blond and blue-eyed. In the same book, he argued that the "Nordic race" is the highest level of human development.
