Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


With this project, we wish to understand the social communities in the Hitler Youth organization, in Nazi Germany. The project includes an historical introduction to explain the societal context this generation of children grew up in. The historical introduction includes a description of the general situation in Germany after World War One, the nazi-movement’s rise of power and the organisational structure in, and developement of the Hitler Youth organisation. The project also includes an account of The Frankfurter School’s theories, and an account of the theory of communities of practice. Furthermore, it includes an analysis of the subject as participant in a community and an analysis of how the subject’s participation can be seen as an escape from freedom. Finally, this project includes a discussion of why the german soliders fought for an ideology, and how Nazism can be understood as both reactionary and modern.
