Elwira Bauer's Nazi Propagandist Children's Book Trust No Fox on Green Meadow and no Jew upon his Oath

In response to the factional society of the Weimar Republic, Nazism endeavored to create a new, more-unified society; an ideal national community, populated by an ethnically and culturally homogenous citizenry dogmatically obedient to the theories, laws, and policies of the central governing apparatus (the Nazi Hierarchy and ultimately Hitler). To attain its aims, Nazism employed a variety of tactics: laws were enacted to ethnically purify the population (e.g., the 1935 Nuremberg Laws), sentiments were propagated with the intention of uniting the population behind its leadership (i.e., the Führer Principle), and policies were instituted to ensure total cultural, political, and economic unity (e.g., the 1933 implementation of “Gleichschaltung”). In addition, Nazism utilized enormous amounts of written and oral propaganda to reinforce its principles and accompany its measures, rendering them more palatable to the public and consequently increasing their success, “Local cooperation and leadership were essential to the success of Coordination. So was a bombardment of propaganda from party newspapers and publicists…[e.g., Dr. Goebbels, der Angriff, etc.]” (Bergen 65).

The excerpt entitled “The Führer’s Youth” from Elwira Bauer’s 1936 Nazi propagandist children’s book Trust no Fox on Green Meadow and no Jew upon his Oath, exemplified the new ideal society envisioned by Nazism and reinforced Nazi theories and processes. The title of the book itself, “Trust … no Jew upon his Oath,” reinforced Nazism’s principle that “non-Aryans” were inferior to “Aryans” and, consequently, supported Nazism’s position that an ethnically homogenous populace was preferable to an ethnically diverse one. Furthermore, the manner in which the title vilified and dehumanized Jewry may have contributed to the dampening of any negative reaction to the Nuremberg Laws by the non-Jewish population, (i.e., it is easier to accept discrimination against a group of people if they are already marginal, characterized as dishonest, and equated to an animal). Moreover, as an example of Nazism’s relentless deconstruction of Jewish character, the title also served as a proponent of both “Gleichschaltung” and the Führer Principle, by discrediting and denigrating the Jews, an enemy was defined and targeted for the non-Jewish population to “coordinate” behind their “Führer” against.

Since the purpose of the Hitler Youth (HJ) and the Nazi League of German Girls (BDM) was the coordination of Germany’s young people into a single national movement that was unquestionably loyal to Hitler, the title of the excerpt “The Führer’s Youth” appears to have been carefully worded to reinforce Nazism’s designs for a unified national community through “Gleichschaltung” and quite obviously the Führer Principle. Bergen illustrates, “For at least some Germans the surge of group activities provided...
