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.

I grew up in Germany and wondered about a previous reviewer's comments about the narrator's German mispronunciation. I can't speak for Polish but her German pronunciation is spot on. I did a little research and also discovered (as is apparent also from her very slight German accent) that Kana is a native German. Her pronunciation of German names is perfect.
