On January 30, 1933, Adolf Hitler was appointed chancellor of Germany, thanks largely to the efforts of the Hitler Youth, whose organized propaganda marches throughout Germany helped the Nazi Party grow in strength. By 1939, it is estimated that more than seven million boys and girls belonged to the Hitler Youth.

If you could sum up Hitler Youth in three words, what would they be?

A MUST READ

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Critcal to understanding how a 'good' government gradually infiltrates the most rational of minds in preparation for atrocities.
