A CHILD, A CHILD, A BEAUTIFUL CHILD... MOTHER IF YOU SAY THE FUHRER IS A MANIAC, I'LL TURN YOU IN TO THE GESTAPO! LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT LITTLE KARL'S UNIFORM BROWN SHIRT W/BLACK TIE, RANK LANYARD, THAT WAS WORN BY VARIOUS HITLER YOUTH FORMATIONS. BLACK PANTS WITH HITLER YOUTH BELT BUCKLE, WITH LEATHER SLASH BELT. ON HIS LEFT SLEEVE IS THE TRIANGLE DISTRICT PATCH AND HITLER YOUTH MEMBERSHIP LIGHTNING BOLT RUNE, THIS COULD BE WHITE RUNE ON A RED DISK. BLIND OBEDIENCE: HITLER YOUTH MEMBER WALTHER HESS TURNED IN HIS FATHER FOR CALLING HITLER A CRAZED MANIAC. HIS FATHER WAS ARRESTED BY THE GESTAPO AND SENT TO DACHAU. FOR HIS EXAMPLE, WALTER WAS PROMOTED TO A HIGHER RANK WITHIN THE HITLER YOUTH.

GOOD MORNING TO THE FUHRER: AT THE START OF EACH SCHOOL DAY, THE CHILDREN WOULD FACE THE NEW NATIONAL SOCIALIST FLAG WITH ITS SWASTIKA, GIVE THE NAZI SALUTE AND PLEDGE THEIR LOYALTY TO ADOLF HITLER, THE THIRD REICH AND TO THE FATHERLAND. NEVER IN THEIR LIFE WOULD THEY BE FREE: THE YOUNG WERE INDOCTRINATED INTO NATIONAL SOCIALISM. TEACHERS WERE CLEARED BY THE STATE AND URGED TO JOIN THE NAZI PARTY. JEWISH TEACHERS WERE FORCED OUT EVERYTHING WAS CONTROLLED BY THE STATE. WHAT BOOKS TO READ, WHAT TO HEAR, WHAT TO LEARN AND WHAT TO THINK. THE NEW CURRICLUM HATE THY NEIGHBOR, CHEAT THY NEIGHBOR LIE TO THY NEIGHBOR AND KILL THY NEIGHBOR NATIONAL SOCIALISM DOMINATED THEIR LIVES YOUNG BOYS AND GIRLS WERE REQUIRED TO JOIN VARIOUS HITLER YOUTH ORGANIZATIONS. BOYS AND GIRLS 10 TO 14 WERE IN SOME FORM OF YOUTH FORMATIONS. BOYS AND GIRLS 14 TO 18 WERE IN OTHER HITLER YOUTH GROUPS AND FORMATIONS. BEFORE WARS END, MANY WOULD PAY A HEAVY PRICE FOR THE LOSS OF THEIR YOUTH, OTHERS WITH THEIR LIVES, THE SURVIVORS WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN. THOSE WHO CONTROL THE YOUTH, CONTROL THE FUTURE -ADOLF HITLER-
