At fourteen boys were told:
You may all have to die for Hitler before you are twenty. But is that not a wonderful privilege? What greater and more glorious mission can a German boy have than to die for the saviour of germany? And now raise your hands and repeat after me the oath that will indeed make you Hitler soldiers, ready to lay down your lives for him"
Songs of the Hitler Youth carried the double message as in:
Triumphant we will beat the French.
and die brave heroes.
