    Brief Narrative
    Filmstrip titled, Deutsche Leistung im Osten [German Power in the East] with 39 images produced to train and educate Hitler Youth group members about the need and the absolute right of the Third Reich to expand eastward. 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.
