Hitler Youth

Hitler was a firm believer in indoctrinating the Nazi ideaology at a young age. The Hitler Youth was based on Hitler's "anti-intellectualism" and focused on military training. The Hitler Youth compromised close to ninety percent of the country's young people. The Nazis capitilized on the youth's enthusiasm with their constant craving for action and desire for peer approval to regard the Hitler Youth as their "home away from home". This particular youth group was the ONLY group in Nazi Germany to participate legally outisde of school. These impressionable children could not escape Nazi ideaologies because of Hitler's control of educational content throughout Germany
