Weekly Quotation Posters

The Nazis issued weekly posters with inspirational quotations. I already had many of these on the GPA, but a friend of the site recently provided me with about a dozen 1938 examples from Gau Saarpfalz that I have added to the page.

The Hitler Youth in Kiel

There was a burst of books of party history between 1938 and 1941, glorifying the "period of struggle." Today, I'm adding sections from a 1938 book titled The Hitler Youth in Kiel. It contains an introductory chapter outlining the history of the Hitler Youth in the area, which I have translated in full. There are then a lot of brief accounts, of which I have translated a few. The book has 128 pages. I've translated about twenty pages in all.
