As you might be aware, the proper education of all children has become a key component of the brilliant success of the present Government.

We are now in the final stages of our 10 year plan. As promised in our manifesto, the NC will be changed as follows:

  • Any child seen with their shirt hanging out of their trousers or their tie at half mast must be reported by his/her classmates.
  • All deviant children will enter a two year correction programme. Here they will have their dignity and pride restored painlessly.
  • All school children, throughout England & Wales, must have their noses measured.
  • Anyone with a nose more than 5cm long (girls) or 6.5cm long (boys) must present themselves to the Racial Purity Board for a painless DNA check.

Remember, you belong to your country and must always act as its ambassador. Serve your Motherland well!

God Bless and Keep you all. May the British reign supreme for one thousand years!

Michael Gove

Minister for Education


How did the Nazis deal

With young people?


Lesson Objective:

To identify the key features of Nazi Education in Schools and youth clubs

In your exercise books draw two columns under the title.

During the next two lessons we are going to research into life for children in Nazi Germany. The information from this table will be used to produce an article on children in Nazi Germany.

the importance of youth
The importance of youth

Hitler aimed for a ‘Thousand Year Reich’. Young people were the future, so it was vital to win their support:

“In my great educative work I am beginning with the young. We older ones are used up … We are cowardly and sentimental … I intend to have an athletic youth … In this way I shall eradicate the thousands of years of human domestication. Then I shall have in front of me the pure and noble natural material. With that I can create the new order.”

Hitler Speaks, Hermann Rauschning, 1939.

Hitler (and other Nazi leaders) placed a higher value on what children did than on what they studied.

As a result of this, the importance of schools was diminished by the growth of Nazi youth organizations.

On coming to power, Hitler immediately took steps to bring the education system under Nazi control. The next slide outlines how this was done.

Controlling education

The Nazi Minister of Education was Bernhard Rust.

He focused on controlling the education of Germany’s young people through three key areas:

  • Control of teachers
  • Control of the curriculum
  • Establishment of specialist schools.

Many teachers were pro-Nazi as they had been poorly paid during the Weimar period. However, others were against the regime.

The Nazis were keen to keep close control over the teaching profession and did so in a number of ways:

  • Appointments: All teachers had to join the National Socialist Teachers’ League (NSLB). Members had to be Aryan and were vetted for signs of disloyalty.
  • Power: The ‘leader principle’ meant that head teachers did not consult teaching staff about policy matters.
  • Professional development: Teachers were made to go on special indoctrination camps where they did PE and attended lectures on Nazi doctrine.

All subjects were taught with a Nazi bias: “The whole function of education is to create Nazis” Bernhard Rust, 1938.

specialist schools
Specialist schools

The Nazis introduced special boarding schools. There were two main types.

youth organizations

Youth organizations

All young people were supposed to join a Nazi Youth Movement.

Other youth movements, such as the Scouts and Girl Guides, were banned.

Hitler’s organizations taught them loyalty and were designed to prepare girls and boys for the roles they would need to perform in wartime.

resistance to the youth movements
Resistance to the Youth Movements

The youth groups were not universally popular. Many young Germans found them too regimented and militaristic.

By 1938, attendance levels at Hitler Youth clubs was barely 25%, prompting the government to make attendance compulsory in 1939.

Some young people formed their own alternative groups:

  • The Edelweiss Pirates grew their hair long and fought with members of the Hitler Youth.
  • Members of the Swing Movement defied the Nazis by listening to banned American Jazz music.

During the war, the Gestapo cracked down on these groups. Some members as young as 16 were even hanged.
