Young German girls in many ways were incredibly important to the future of Nazi society. They were responsible for carrying on the Aryan race, when teaching German girls their educators informed them that they basically were around to have children and ensure that those children were raised with Nazi ideals. The physical activities that German girls did in the League of German Girls were even focused on preparing their bodies for child birth. Rhythmic gymnastics was one activity chosen because German health authorities deemed less strenuous to the female body and better geared to preparing them for motherhood. Yet girls were kicked out of the League if they were pregnant at a young age. Like many things in Nazi society this makes no sense, it’s completely contradictory of the ideals that the Nazi’s try to teach children. They want you to get pregnant and have a lot of perfect Aryan babies but if you do get pregnant you’ll be kicked out of the League of German Girls? This makes no sense, what if they discover that one of the German boys fathered a child at a young age would they be kicked out of their youth group as well? The long term effects on these girls who had children at such a young age and had no clue who the father was were probably terrible. In some cases the children were given up for adoption and the Nazi’s in a way helped to find these children good homes which creates even more confusion for a fourteen year old. They were told they should get pregnant and have many children, then kicked out a League for German Girls if they did in fact get pregnant, but then they would be given assistance in finding a good home for the baby or raising it themselves. It’s incredibly contradictory society, yet in a way it’s not unlike how people react to pregnant teenagers in our country. The girl who is pregnant is often the only one looked down on or occasionally kicked out of school in some situations while the boy who impregnated her is often forgiven, ignored, or faces minimal consequences if any . It’s a little scary that we can make a direct comparison between our society and the society of Nazi Germany.
