The 'Hitler-Jugend' or 'HJ' ('Hitler Youth')

This was the official junior section of the Nazi Party (NSDAP). In 1936 all other youth organizations, such as the Boy Scouts, were banned in Germany, and in 1939 membership was made compulsory. The under-14s had their own organization called the "Jungvolk".

There was a girl's section called, somewhat oddly the 'Bund deutscher M�del' (BdM) - League of German Girls (or possibly 'lasses').

The Hitler-Jugend had an official song that became enormously popular in Nazi Germany - 'Es zittern die morschen Knochen' ('The frail bones [of the elderly] tremble') ... It's best known for the lines in the refrain - 'Denn heute gehoert uns Deutschland/Morgen die ganze Welt!' (English: 'For today we have Germany/Tomorrow the whole world!')

trust me it helps a lot
