World War II was known as the war that ended all wars and a big part of it was the existence of a man named Hitler. What most people did not know is that Hitler had a supportive group called Judend (the Hitler Youth). In the Hitler Youth, their job was to brainwash the children for Hitler’s army. He would take them and divide them into sectors. He would teach them the ways of the Nazis, and then he would use them for battle. The Hitler Youth was just as important to a German child as attending school was. When a male child turned 10, he would join Jungvolk (German young people). While they were there, they learned what was to be a German and started physical training. Then, when the boy turned 13 he joined Judend (the Hitler Youth). They learned how to read maps, gas defense, shoot and get through barbwire, and sometimes at this point war. After a young boy turned 18, he would leave the Hitler Youth and join the army. Hitler also took young girls when they were 10, so they could join Jungmadelbund (League of Young Girls). They learned how to be a mother and learned how to defend themselves. They stayed there until they were 18 and left to look for a husband. The main point of the Hitler Youth was to form Hitler’s supper soldiers. Hitler felt this way because he always said “The weak must be chiseled away. I want young men and women who can suffer pain. A young German must be as swift as a greyhound, as tough as leather, and as hard as Krupp’s steel” (Hitler, “Young people in Germany”). There is no doubt that before the children joined the Hitler Youth; they knew what kind of camp they were joining. Although they did not know what was going on, the children still followed the ways of the Nazis. In the beginning stages of Jungvolk, they learned how to be tough and never give up. They also learned that Hitler was the best and was their leader, and they believed it. The teachers taught them that the wars Germany lost was because of the Jewish citizens, and the Jews needed to die. Then when they joined Judend, they were taught how to fight, and absorb pain, and what to do if they were captured. In the end of the training, they became the “Super Men” that Hitler wanted. Furthermore, Hitler made this kid army was to show that the Hitler Youth was the new army and the new Germany. Hitler would put the children in battle on the front lines. Hitler did this to make sure he won the war at any cost. What he would made the young people do in was battle be the drummers in the front lines or hold the flags and sometime prepare the cannons. All and all the Hitler youth was what helped Hitler get so far in his dictatorship and most of the kids died and for Hitler. The ones who lived looked back and never knew why they had done it. The most famous Hitler youth survivor was Joseph Ratzinger also known as Pope Benedict XVI. Even he was In the Hitler youth and says he is scared for everything that he has done when he was young and never wants to look back at it.
