We're very keen on 'please' and 'thank you' on this forum, if you're asking for help.

Welcome to the Forum. My usual advice is to do a forum search and see what (if anything) comes up; for example this thread on the Hitler Youth.

There is also some information which may help you on the History Learning Site on this page. There is also material on the Spartacus Schoolnet site, for example this page on the German Girls' League (B.D.M.). This will give you some pointers: remember to have a look at pages on education as well as the Hitler Youth (H.J.) and B.D.M.

With regard to your specific question, there will be various factors you need to consider. For example, to what extent were children effectively forced to join Nazi youth movements? Was this the only reason they joined? What differences might here have been between boys and girls?

Hope that this all helps.

Good point.

Yes, eventually all other youth movements were banned, starting with those run by the Nazis' political opponents and then moving on to church youth groups. However, even before many young people were forced to join, the HJ and the BDM were becoming increasingly popular for a number of reasons. These included the sort of activities which were run as well as a desire among many people to 'fit in'.

By the way, welcome to the forum.
