Hitler’s Children: Sacrifice

Never has a generation been so completely taken over by a totalitarian state as was the case in Hitler’s Third Reich: at the age of 10 children joined the “Jungvolk” movement, at 14 they joined the Hitler Youth, and at 18 they joined the party, the “Wehrmacht”, the SA, or the SS.

This 5-part documentary by Guido Knopp and the ZDF Contemporary History Department is the first comprehensive film portrayal of the young people in the Third Reich.

With in-depth witness statements and some previously unpublished archive material, the documentary demonstrates how Hitler succeeded in gaining power over “his children” through years of manipulation.

  1. They are Germ

  2. I am a child of Hitler,
    And he has sent me here,
    Has given me an Aryan home
    With the furor kind and dear.
    Lead me, guide me, walk beside me,
    Help me find the jews.
    Teach me all that I must do
    To burn them someday.

    I am a child of Hitler,
    And so his needs are great;
    Help me to understand his love
    Before it grows to late.
