Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What law was issued by Hitler on 1 December 1936?

Answer: The Hitler Youth Law.

The law was updated in 1939 and again in 1941. Youths between the ages of 10 and 18 years were eligible to join the Hitler Youth.

The Enabling Act marked the beginning of Hitler's hold over Germany. The law basically gave Hitler dictatorship powers.

The Nuremberg Laws were passed 'by acclamation' on September 15, 1935. The laws targeted the Jews and gave a definition of what a Jewish person was. The laws included some of the following provisions:

It was illegal for any Jew to marry non-Jew. Jews were only allowed to marry other Jews who were Jewish to the same 'degree'. So a 'full Jew' was not allowed to marry a 'half Jew', for example.

Jews were not allowed to have sexual relations with non-Jews.
Jews were not allowed to fly the Reich flag.
Jews were stripped of most features of German citizenship (but until 1941 could still obtain German passports if they wanted to emigrate).

The Nazi Weapons Act of 18 March 1938 was updated the day after Kristallnacht (or the "Night of Broken Glass"). Kristallnacht took place on 9-10 November 1938. Jews were not allowed to possess firearms or ammunition under these new laws.
2. Various organisations were formed during the pre-war years. Who would have joined the Bund Deutscher Mädel?

Answer: German girls.

The Bund Deutscher Mädel, or BDM, was the female branch of the Hitler Youth. It consisted of three branches and membership was compulsory for those girls aged between 10-18 years. (The word 'Mädel' - rather than 'Mädchen' - is South German, reflecting the NSDAP's Bavarian origins. In many other parts of Germany it has a somewhat odd ring to it, rather like 'lasses' in English).

The Jungmädelbund (Young Girls' League) was for young girls aged between 10-14 years.

The League of German Girls was for the ages of 14-18.

The Belief and Beauty Society (BDM-Werk Glaube und Schönheit) was established in 1938 and was open to young women aged between 17-21 years. Membership of this section of the BDM was voluntary.
3. Membership to the Hitler Youth was voluntary, however membership was so high because the Nazi propaganda made it sound so enticing.

Answer: False

The Hitler Youth Law (that was passed on 1 December 1936) made it mandatory for all eligible children to join the Hitler Youth ('Hitlerjugend').

Activities included hiking, camping trips, gymnastics, marching and shooting guns.

Boys between the ages of 10 to 13 were part of the Deutsches Jungvolk (German Young People). From 13 until 18 years they formed the Hitler Jugend (Hitler Youth).

Membership had reached over 5 million by the end of 1936.
4. Members of the Hitler Youth were later formed into a Waffen SS division. What was the designated name of the Hitlerjugend division?

Answer: 12th SS Panzer Division.

The 12th SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend was also known as the "baby division" because of the age of the soldiers that formed the core troops.

Formed in 1943, the division was made up of recruits from the Hitler Youth that had been born in 1926.

The division fought in the Normandy Area after D-Day with its first taste of action on 7 June, 1944.

The division was responsible for the murder of 140 Canadian POWs.

The Commanding Officer was Oberführer Fritz Witt from the 1st SS Panzer Division Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler.
5. The motto of the boys of the Hitler Youth was: "Live faithfully, fight bravely, and die ____________"?

Answer: Laughing!

When the 10 year old boys entered the Hitler Youth they made this oath:

"In the presence of this blood banner which represents our Führer, I swear to devote all my energies and my strength to the saviour of our country, Adolf Hitler. I am willing and ready to give up my life for him, so help me God."
6. The motto for the girls of the Hitler Youth was: "Be faithful, be pure, be___________!"

Answer: German!

According to Hitler's book, "Mein Kampf", the German woman is "a subject who only becomes a citizen when she marries".
7. Adolf Hitler said this about the Hitler Youth. What should be in the missing blank. "The German youth must be slender and supple, fast as a greyhound, tough as leather, and ______________.

Answer: Hard as Krupp steel.

Adolf Hitler added: "He must learn to do without, to endure criticism and injustice, to be reliable, discreet, decent, and loyal".
8. The Nazi Party started the Kraft durch Freude - literally Strength through Joy - (or KdF) movement. What (or who) did it cater for?

Answer: Package holidays and leisure activities.

The KdF movement organised package holidays for ordinary Germans.
On the lower end of the scale they organised plays, concerts, sports events and day trips.
Organised holidays could be to a number of locations including the Alps, Norway, Lisbon and the Baltic coast.
The KdF also intended to make ownership of a car (the VW beetle) possible for the average German.
9. The Nazis actively promoted population growth. Incentives were put in place to encourage the birth rate to rise. One such incentive was "The Mother's Cross", a medal awarded for giving birth. How many children were required to earn the bronze Mother's Cross?

Answer: 4

The bronze cross was for 4 children born.
The silver cross was for 6 children born.
The gold cross was for more than 8 children born.

The Nazis had the official belief that the woman's place was in the home as a mother and housewife.

Abortions were illegal for Germans.
10. The Law for the Promotion of Marriages was passed in 1934. What did it offer those that got married?

Answer: A substantial loan.

A loan of 1,000 Reichsmarks was offered to newly weds. But there was a catch: the woman had to give up her job and was not allowed to take on any paid employment as long as her husband had work.
The incentive to the loan scheme, however, was that for every child that the married couple gave birth to, a quarter of the loan was cancelled. If they gave birth to four children the entire loan was cancelled.
Over a six year period more than one million loans were granted. The birth rate skyrocketed as a result.
