Nazis are known for stealing and hoarding the greatest art and commissioning the worst.
Also destroying a lot of great art as "decadent".
They are not normally thought of in any real way as inspirers of great art.
In less one thinks of say the written works of Eli Wiesel having to do with
suffering in the camps or other stuff like that. 
Messian's Quartet for the End of Time
We can thank the Nazi's for that. Gee.
