Parents and Children and Hitler Youth

In the 1930s, conflicts between children and parents arose when Hitler started the Hitler Youth. At that time, every German child felt complied to join this "group" because all of their friends and classmates were. The Hitler Youth was created to spread Hitler's propaganda and because children could be easily swayed to think a certain way, the ideas of the program spread. Hitler's propaganda about the Hitler Youth being cheerful and good spread through the children to their parents. Children began to argue with their parents about the truth of the group. Because all the children felt the Hitler Youth was good, they went against what their parents said about it.
