Lechner: Hitlerjugend (Ulm)

Silvester Lechner, ed. Die "Hitlerjugend" am Beispiel der Region Ulm/Neu-Ulm. Ulm: DZOK Manuskripte, 1993.

Lechner and a group of students collected marvelous materials that document the human face of the teenagers and young adults who participated in Hitler Youth activities in Ulm. They make no value judgments about who was good and who was evil.

This factual portrayal of the backdrop for the White Rose Ulmers lends itself to a better understanding of their story. The small book would make an excellent addition to an upper level high school German class.
