They breached the rights of others who they considered to be causing grievious harm to them. Such defense is allowed under Objectivism, and Objectivism does not allow for altruistic compassion for people considered to be weak.

Hitler acted with the purpose of restoring Germany's glory and bringing the new race of mankind into being.

This was a good purpose... however it had a monstrous effect because his purpose was not a high enough purpose, and he did not trust the evolution of human understanding to bring in the new man naturally, so he tried to force it by removing what he considered to be genetic weaknesses from the gene pool.

Hitler acted with reason. Not only that, he was inspired by Nietsche, as was Ayn Rand.
