The Nazi Youth Movement
Hitler thought that young people were integral to changing Germany, so he created a Nazi youth-group named the Jugendbund in the 1920’s. Hitler’s initial purpose of the youth group was to show that Germany could be strong state and potentially a big power. This youth group also functioned as a scouting service for the youth.
The German Youth Movement also influenced the White Rose's way of fighting.
