The Daily Mail likes to just randomly dig up stories from Hitler’s Germany and give histrionic reports on it.
This recent one about the pure evil of Hitler’s Girl Scouts is particularly bizarre.
School girls learning to bake is portrayed as the embodiment of devilish darkness.
Chilling footage of a girls’ ‘summer camp’ that took place during 1939 reveals how teenagers were indoctrinated into Hitler’s anti-Semitic ideology.
The blonde haired, blue-eyed youngsters, aged between 14-18, were all part of Hitler’s League of German Girls who have been specially selected, based on ‘genetic quality’ by the Nazi Party.
Unsettling black-and-white footage, obtained from the National Archives of Germany, was taken at the Country Service camp in Munich and shows the fresh-faced girls eagerly raising the swastika flag and obediently performing the Nazi salute.
The video, entitled ‘Madel im Landjahr’ is translated as ‘Girls in Country Service Gamp’, and features the League of German Girls or Bund Deutscher Mädel (BDM), the girls wing of the Hitler Youth.
The footage shows the young women performing chores around the camp including cooking, cleaning and agricultural activities which consisted of planting of crops and the general maintenance of the farms.
The video also shows girls taking part in gymnastics. Sport was a big part of the life at BDM camps as it was intended to create healthy, strong girls who were fit for child-bearing and would go on to produce multiple children to increase the population.
The BDM began in 1930 but it wasn’t until Baldur Von Schirach was appointed head of the Hitler Youth in 1931 that the group began to rise in popularity with membership estimated between 10,000 to 15,000 girls at the end of 1932.
The league focused on developing girls into women who were dedicated to Nazism and whose role within society was to become ‘mothers of the Third Reich’. The girls were to grow-up with an unquestioning understanding of the regime and their intended role.
Hitler hoped that the work on these camps would encourage young girls to leave the city and work on the land in the service of the Nazi’s ‘Blood and Soil’ values – which instructed the German people to pursue an honest rural life over urban ‘Jewish’ professions.
At the camps, girls were trained in Nazi ideology and encouraged anti-semitism. The teens were taught to avoid ‘racial defilement’, by following a Nazi policy prohibiting sexual relations between Aryans and non-Aryans and encouraged the girls to inform the authorities if their parents or neighbours were not acting in line with the regime.
In lessons, the girls were presented with propaganda videos and stories focused on painting Jewish people as inherently unsavoury characters.
Yeah, so, I mean… that reads like a pamphlet for “why we should bring back Nazism.”
It’s very wholesome and nice.
To be clear, the literal argument that the Daily Mail is making is that it is good that we replaced Nazi Girl Scout marriage training with this:
So, I mean.
You figure that out.
