Why is this here? At the beginning of the Great War, or even during the War, if twelve or fifteen thousand of these Jews who were corrupting the nation had been forced to submit to poison-gas.
Prelude to War - On the night of January 30,Nazis in Berlin celebrated the appointment of Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany by conducting massive torchlight parades.
Hitler Youth units were among those in the columns passing under the watchful gaze of Hitler and Paul von Hindenburg, the elderly president of Germany. Within two months, Hitler acquired dictatorial powers resulting from the Enabling Act passed by the Nazi-controlled Reichstag.
Hitler's acquisition of power meant the Hitler Youth and all other Nazi organizations now had the official power of the State on their side.
The period of Nazi Gleichschaltung forced coordination immediately began in which all German institutions and organizations were either Nazified or disbanded. Hitler Youth Leader Baldur von Schirach now sought to eliminate all of the other competing youth organizations, large and small, throughout Germany.
On April 3,Schirach sent fifty Hitler Youths storming into the Berlin offices of the Reichs Committee of German Youth Associations, an organization representing nearly six million German children involved a huge array of youth programs.
Staff members inside the building were told to continue working and were simply informed they were now under the authority of the Hitler Youth.
Thus the majority of Germany's youth organizations had instantly been placed under Schirach's control. Hitler Youths on bicycles with publicity signs saying "Are you a German boy?
Others, such as the Communist and Jewish youth organizations were quickly disbanded. Various Protestant groups were pressured by the Nazis to join and soon yielded.
Offices of the Socialist Workers' Youth were also raided. Other groups were prevented from holding any gatherings by order of the police and Nazi storm troopers under the pretext of being a "public nuisance.
The only major holdout was the Catholic Youth Organization due in part to the international clout of the Church and an agreement Concordat that had been signed between the Vatican and Hitler's government protecting Catholic institutions in Germany. In Catholic sections of Germany, high ranking Nazis could still be found at Sunday mass along with groups of Hitler Youths in uniform and Hitler Youths serving at the altar wearing their uniforms beneath altar boy robes.
Schirach was now answerable only to Hitler, with all youth activities in Germany placed under Schirach's sole command. Reorganization Schirach soon introduced a new structure to the Hitler Youth based on age. Little boys aged 6 to 10 were allowed to hang around the older boys and participate informally.
Boys 10 to 14 belonged to the Jungvolk, then from 14 to 18 were in the actual HJ, the commonly used abbreviation for Hitler Jugend Hitler Youth.
Each boy was given a performance booklet detailing his progress in athletics and Nazi indoctrination throughout all of his years in the HJ. They wore a schoolgirl-style uniform with skirts and blouses along with army-style hiking boots. However, the Hitler Youth organization was primarily male oriented and would remain so throughout the duration of the Third Reich, although the HJ and BDM did share common traits including a heavy emphasis on competition.
Just about every task, no matter how big or small, was turned into an individual, team, or unit competition. This included boys and girls sports, the quality of singing during propaganda marches, and Winter Aid collections.
Boys and girls were kept constantly busy. The Nazis capitalized on the natural enthusiasm of young people, their craving for action and desire for peer approval, hoping that each young person would come to regard his or her HJ or BDM unit as a home away from home, or perhaps as their real home.
Activities for boys included vigorous games of hide and seek called "Trapper and Indian. This sometimes resulted in fist fights and outright brawls between platoons.
Younger, weaker boys got pummeled while platoon leaders stood by or even encouraged the fighting. Ripped shirts, scraped knees and elbows along with bruises were common during these field exercises which were intended to toughen them up.
Leadership Schools By the end ofthe Hitler Youth organization had absorbed twenty German youth leagues and totaled over 3. But this rapid increase also brought big problems, namely the lack of trained, politically reliable local youth leaders.
New members absorbed from non-Nazi youth groups brought along non-Nazi sentiments and also struggled to adjust to the strict regimentation and tighter discipline of the Hitler Youth.
A common scene in the German countryside--Hitler Youths on a brisk military-style hike, singing one of the numerous HJ or Nazi marching songs they've memorized. The summer solstice is celebrated with HJ members leaping over the Sonnenwendfeuer.
Roll call for year-old Jungvolks at camp. By AugustSchirach reported that over 12, Hitler Youth leaders and 24, Jungvolk leaders had completed these courses.
The individual member's value to the whole is determined by the degree to which he is permeated by the idea. The best Hitler Youth, irrespective of rank and office, is he who completely surrenders himself to the National Socialist world view.
