In the introduction to his book, Hans Surén wrote that he was a National Socialist and felt it was his duty to fight for breeding of pure blooded, aryan Germans.

With this book he wanted to inspire the reader to strive to keep the Nordic race and German blood pure. Suren also pointed out that his book Mensch und Sonne was recommended by the Leiter des Rassenpolitisches Amtes der NSDAP (Leader of the Racial Political Department of the State Leadership of the NSDAP).

According to Suren, the goal of this book was to make Germans realize the importance of physical excercise for a healthy body and soul, and that exercise was an important part of achieving the Nordic ideal.

With the photos in Mensch und Sonne he attempted to show the reader the ideal to strive for. Suren also tried to educate National Socialists about nudism in harmony with nature and told readers not to be ashamed or afraid of nudity. The book contains many quotations from Adolf Hitler’s book Mein Kampf about the subject of racial purity.
