The Third Reich

 

The power of propaganda (youth)

Reaching the young

The youth were a major target of Nazi propaganda. Sophisticated propaganda methods indoctrinated the youth to serve the Fuhrer and the Nazi party. From a young age German boys were obliged to join the Hitler Youth Movement and girls were encouraged to become members of the League of German Maidens. Antisemitic books instilled hatred of Jews in school children of all ages.
