Photo of the Day – 01/12/17 (“Hitler Youth”, 1938)

Daily Photo — “Hitler Youth, 1938”

When you think of the horrors of Nazi Germany and everything it, and the Hitler Youth represented, it’s hard to remember that for these kids, it was just like being in the Boy Scouts.  I can easily see these same faces camping in a tent in BSA uniforms.  It also makes one wonder how many of these smiling boys survived the next seven years.

1938. Stuttgart, Germany. “Von der 6. Reichstagung der Auslandsdeutschen (Hitler Youth in tent during festivities for the 6th Annual National Days of Foreign Germans).” Photo by Heinrich Hoffmann, Kochstraße 10, Berlin.
