Hitler's Children

By 1943 the tide had turned against Nazi Germany and it was losing the war. In a desperate attempt to make up for its manpower shortage Hitler and his henchmen turned to their country's children to fill the ranks of its army.

The Nazis began recruiting from the ranks of the Hitlerjugend and kids as young as 13 and 14 found themselves manning flak batteries and dying in trenches on the Eastern front.

Some became members of the 12th SS Panzer Division Hitlerjugend and first saw battle against the Allies in Normandy in June 1944, where they suffered heavy losses.

The division surrendered to the Americans in Austria just under a year later, when its strength had been reduced from over 20,000 to 10,000 men and boys.
