Lebensraum (German): literally, space for living or existence. The Nazi Lebensraum policy was a policy of territorial expansion aimed at acquiring "a fairer distribution" of the world's raw materials so as to provide Germans with Nahrungsfreiheit (freedom from importing food) and a standard of living equal to the world's highest.[1]
