Object | Accession Number: 2009.404.2 a-c

Filmstrip titled 5000 Jahre Germanentum [5000 Years of the German race] with 38 images produced to train and educate Hitler Youth group members about the greatness and superiority of the German race. The Propaganda Office of the Reich Youth Leadership produced a series of 35mm filmstrips in the late 1930s, Bildband fur die Schulung in der HJ [Filmstrip for Training in the Hitler Youth]. The filmstrips were distributed to local Hitler Youth chapters to show at gatherings and to use as propaganda to recruit members and disseminate the teachings of 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.
