League Of German Girls

7

The League of German Girls or Band of German Maidens (German: Bund Deutscher Mädel, BDM) was the girls’ wing of the Nazi Party youth movement, the Hitler Youth. It was the only female youth organization in Nazi Germany.

The BDM used campfire romanticism, summer camps, folklorism, tradition, and sports to indoctrinate girls within the National Socialist belief system, and to train them for their roles in German society: wife, mother, and homemaker.

This photograph is of what I believe to be members of the Bund Deutscher Mädel (League of German Girls), more commonly known as the BDM, the sole female youth organization in Germany during World War II that primarily worked to indoctrinate members with Nazi ideology. However, the web page it was attached to implies that it was part of a German bride training program, which could be in reference to the BDM-Werk Glaube und Schönheit (Faith and Beauty Society) which was a voluntary program for young women from ages 17-21.
