Describe what life was like women and children under the Nazis
The first 200 words of this essay...
Hitler went through a lot of trouble to make sure that the young people were loyal to him and the Nazi party. School books were rewritten to give them good view of Nazi's; all teachers had to belong to the German Teachers League, put across Nazi ideas in their lessons and go to compulsory training courses during school holidays. German school children were not educated but indoctrinated (getting people to believe in a set of ideas.)
Outside of school, young people had to belong to youth organisation which taught them loyalty to Hitler and military training. The five organisations together made up Hitler Youth Movement (HYM):
By 1939 some 8 million had joined the Hitler Youth Movement.
Every year Hitler youth had to go to training camps where they learnt to read maps, did sports, gymnastics and they were taught Nazi ideas.
Training was taken very seriously. A fourteen year-old guard at the entrance shot dead a ten year-old boy who could not remember the password.
Every child had a "performance book" where marks for athletics, camping and fighting skills were recorded. Those with the highest scores went to special schools
