Hitler Youth educational pamphlet to accompany a filmstrip about the German conquest of northern Europe

Object | Accession Number: 2007.502.1.22

Propaganda pamphlet to accompany a filmstrip that was shown to Hitler Youth groups about Germany's May 1940 offensive against Belgium, the Netherlands, and France. The pamphlet has numbered paragraphs that correspond to an image in the filmstrip. Filmstrips had no sound and the text would be read aloud when the film was projected. The Propaganda Office of the Reich Youth Leadership produced a series of 35mm filmstrips in the late 1930s for distribution to Hitler Youth chapters. They were shown at gatherings and used to recruit and indoctrinate members in the ideology of Hitler and the Nazi Party. On December 1, 1936, the Reich Youth Leadership, under Baldur von Schirach, became an autonomous organization accountable only to Hitler. Membership in the Hitler Youth became mandatory on March 25, 1939.
