Didn't the Nazis realize that by trying to create a so-called pure "master race" they were actually creating a disadvantage for the future ?

Genetic diversity is advantageous to humans. Their ideology of pseudoscientific racial purity would have made them weaker with each generation.

    No. They believed in eugenics... and then their own "Lebensborn"-program proved that it doesn't work

    1. They didn't care.

    2. They were establishing an 'us and them' society, which was the whole purpose to get them to stay in power.

    You're wrong about the "weaker with each generation" part.  Their not-very-exclusive European grouping had enough genetic diversity and numbers not to fall to inbreeding.  Think about all the semi-isolated groups that existed for millennia prior to the Roman empire.
