It might help if you could clarify this question.  The best example of Nazism was, of course, the Nazi Party and its rule over Germany between 1933 and 1945.  But that seems like too obvious of an answer.  Are you looking for examples of Nazism in other times and places?  Or are you asking for an example of Nazi values from within Nazi Germany?

I'll give two examples of Nazi values from within Nazi Germany:

  • Hitler Youth.  One Nazi value was the idea that everyone should have the same sorts of ideas and values.  Men should be physically strong because war was an important way of showing racial superiority.  The Hitler Youth promoted these things through physical training and by trying to instill Nazi values in all German youth.
  • Nuremberg rallies.  Another major value was veneration of the leader.  Nazism held that the leader was a superior person who should be obeyed in all things.  These rallies were meant to show the strength of the Nazi Party and to inspire people to see Hitler as Germany's savior.
