Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Hitler Jugend (Hitler Youth), the Nazi party's youth movement, indoctrinated German youth to perpetuate the "1,000 year Reich." The Hitler Youth movement emphasized activism, physical training, Nazi ideology, especially nationalism and racial concepts, and absolute obedience to Hitler and the Nazi Party. Indoctrinating children in National Socialist ideology was a key goal of the Nazi Party. Once Hitler assumed control over the German state, he used the Goverment to make the Hitler Youth the country's all encompassing youth movement. Hitler and other Nazi leaders saw the indoctrination of young Germans as of critical importance.

In the same year that they took power, the Nazis organized German youth organizations into two branches of the Hitler Youth (Hitler Jugend), one branch for boys and one for girls. Membership was eventually made compulsory and all boys had to report to a neighborhood office to have his racial background checked and be registered for membership. There was then a typically elaborate introduction ceremony on the Führer's birthday. The Hitler Youth was not just a German version of the Boy Scouts. The Hitler Youth were more similar to the Soviet Young Pioneers, but even with the Pioneers there were major differences.

Hitler from the beginning saw the Hitler Youth movement as a tool to hardening boys for their future role of soldiers. He wanted a generation of "victorious active, daring youth, immune to pain." There was to be no "intellectual" training for the boys of the New Order, Hitler saw intellectual pursuits as damaging to German youth. The Nazis used the Hitler Jugend to educate German Youth " in the spirit of National Socialism " and subjected them to an intensive program of Nazi propaganda. The Nazis established the Hitler Jugend as a source of replacements for Nazi Party formations.

The Hitler Youth leadership in October, 1938 entered into an agreement with Himmler under which members of the Hitler Jugend who met SS standards would be considered as the primary source of recruitment for the SS. The Nazis also used the Hitler Jugend for pre-military training. Special units were set up whose primary purpose was training specialists for the various military branches.
