Innocent Eyes - The Chosen Girls of the Hitler Youth
Cynthia A. Sandor, 2012
Landjahr Lager taught the girls how to build their courage,
and character in a friendly and fun atmosphere through the power of
camaraderie. This elite rural educational program provided the
fundamental building blocks which would stay with them a lifetime.
The educational curriculum was designed exclusively by the Reich’s Ministry of Science, Education, and Culture. The focus was to build the girls full individual potential to become a productive member in society.
Their education went beyond the traditional home economics, sports activities, and child rearing as we have all come to believe. Through a myriad of enriching experiences, these girls developed their interpersonal mental, physical, and spiritual skills. Their challenging assignments included thought provocative discussions, problem-solving activities, and team-building exercises, which ended in their daily prayer.
They contributed to local society by working with the farmers planting and harvesting the local crops, holding theatrical plays, musical performances, and organizing summer festivals for the townspeople.
By the time these girls graduated, they could move into their chosen vocation from agriculture, hospitality, retail, office work, or full home management and childcare. They had an exact understanding of their responsibility and duties to their state and in their work place. It was a great honor to be chosen for Landjahr Lager.
