Extracts from this document...


Katie Yates Mr Insley History GCSE Coursework Assignment 2 Nazi Germany The nature of the "Hitler youth" movement was to indoctrinate the youth of Germany into the way Hitler thought "real" Germans should be. It was set up in 1926 just after Hitler came out of prison, for all young German boys and girls (no Jewish). Hitler started teaching youngsters at a young age. Boys would start at the age of 6, and girls, at the age of 10. There where different groups the boys and girls were never mixed, Boys * 6-10 pimpfen (Cubs) * Deutsches Jungvolk (young German boys) * 14 - 18 Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth) Girls * 10 - 14 Jung M�del (young girls) * 14 - 18 Bund Deutscher (league of German girls) * 18 - 21 Glaube and Sch�nheit (faith and beauty) Joining was not compulsory but there was a great deal of pressure to join the movement. It became compulsory in 1939 this was when Hitler gained power. German children had to confirm that they were pure German and had to sustain general medical examinations. Children with slight Jewish or foreign social class were not accepted in any of the clubs. ...read more.


Only the Aryan race would be encouraged to have children those without the Aryan aspects could be sterilized or be forced to have abortions. Women would not be well educated on contraceptives anyway, Hitler tried to avoid any acknowledge on protected sex, it worked and millions fell pregnant, the number eventually began to fall. Babies that weren't thought to be "undesirable" were sterilized so that the Aryan race would be continued. In 1941 Hitler banned any gypsies, Jews or blacks to be aloud to marry, If they were found cohabiting would be sent to a concentration camp. As women were needed in the home education was not necessary. It was more common for the woman to have learnt skills on being a mother and a good wife. There was an extraordinary change in woman employment also it reduced dramatically. The nazi's saw working women as morally wrong. Although women employment was frowned upon when there were shortages of workers women were called upon to take place until other workers were found. Women were banned of membership to the Reichstag; women were not given any sort of power. Hitler especially hated when women tried there hand at politics, they were not even meant to have the smallest position in German politics what so ever. ...read more.


This was mainly for German viewing because the film was more or less about German victory. Hitler was also orator and his speeches were also a form of propaganda that was used. Gobbels staged rallies, every year, the rallies were held at Nuremburg they bunt Jewish religious books. The Reich chamber of culture was set up in September of 1933 and was headed by Gobbels, anyone who worked in journalism, radio, film, literature, theatre, music or the arts all had to belong to the chamber. Otherwise, they could not get there get there work published. People like Picasso were not aloud to have his paintings in German galleries because he was not German, this would have not been a good example on Germans it showed other places in the world were just as good as Germany . Films came out, films about the Aryan race and the superiority of Hitler and the Nazi party also racist films like "The eternal Jew" which was made in 1940 it was a viscous anti-Jewish film. Also films were made about Nuremburg rallies such as "Triumph of the will" which was about the 1934 rally. Germans were surrounded posters glorifying Hitler. Nazis built huge new buildings in Germany especially in Berlin this improved Germany and made Germans learn the only way to think was to love Hitler. ...read more.
