Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889 in the town of Braunau. He grew up in a poor,
lowclass family with his mother and father. As a kid, Hitler wasn't the smartest, but instead known for
good leadership skills and his popularity. After dropping out of school at the age of fifteen, Hitler tried to
pursue careers in art and the army. Sadly they ended with denial and a stage of blindness. While fighting
in the first World War, Hitler was injured and taken to the hospital. During this time, he was said to have

As shown, the evidence shows how Hitler tried to impact the youth by teaching them all of his principles
and making sure almost all of the boy were in the program. Hitler thought that if he started with the small
boys and girls they would be able to pass it down as well.
Hitler used this program to establish his principles and his legacy. "Hitler Youth was an
organization established by Adolf Hitler to indoctrinate German children into the ideology of the Nazi
Party ." "The Hitler Youth dissolved after World War 2, although there are several neoNazi groups 4
