Policy Goals
The Nazi's used two major organizations to achieve their goals: the school system and youth groups.
Visual Arts
Once students ended their education and youth movements, they would join institutions, such as RAD & DAF, to ensure they did not escape control
-All kinds of visual arts were limited by the Nazi constraints.
"[Christianity is] the unshakeable foundation of the moral life of people" -- Hitler in a speech to the Reichstag, March
- ensure the following generation is under
Nazi's control
- once the youngsters join the group, Nazi
would make sure that they join other Nazi
- predominate over the traditional influences of
parents and the Church
- build ideal Nazi women and men
- girls are preparing for their motherhood and
boys are getting ready to achieve Hitler's
military goals
Policy Goals

respect for tradition and cultural values
respect for Germany/ German government
varying degrees of anti-Semitism
-Modern art schools were in a state of disgrace because many artists were censored.
New Objectivity
Catholic Church and Nazi government sign Concordat, July
-"Georg Grosz and Otto Dix wanted to depict ordinary people in everyday life - and by their art they aimed to comment on the state of society."

-"Their paintings had strong political and social messages and in their artistic approach they showed a seedy, ugly and aggressive style." (Layton, 1712)

Socialist, Pacifist or Jewish tendencies
has War written

Written by authors
who belong in a minority

Literature written by Karl Marx, Erich Maria Remarque and others were burned in book burnings.

" she managed us in such a way that, after we had recognized one another's strengths and weaknesses, she led us to accept on another as we were, with everyone endeavouring to be helpful and reliable"
- Melita, leader in BDM
Bauhaus Style
-Walter Gropius had started the Bauhaus style and had influenced all aspects of design in furniture and architecture.
-The approach he took was functional and he used materials such as steel, cement and plastic while putting them in geometric shapes.
In January, 522,000 Jews lived in Germany
304,000 Jews emigrated during the first 6 years of Nazi leadership
German Faith Movement failed
Churches also failed to stand against Nazi policy; individual Christians questioned the regime more consistently
Feminists may argue that the regime was racist towards women and it portrayed them as mere objects.
Non feminists would say that the policies helped them in some ways such as “Improved welfare services” which made it easier on the women.
There isn’t a sure thing whether the policy failed or succeeded but it was mainly “contradictory and incoherent.” It was not what it seemed to be.
The Progress of German Youth Through Nazi Organizations
-With that, its importance was attached to the close relationship between art and technology with the motto, 'Art and Technology - a new unity'
Hitler Youth
- a range of youth
groups under the
control of its leader
Baldur von Schirach
- in 1939, the
membership of the
HJ (Hitler Jugend)
became compulsory


-July 1937 - Two contrasting art exhibitions were launched and called 'Degenerate Art' and 'Great German Art'.
Jazz became popular in Germany in the Swingin' Twenties during the Weimar republic. When Hitler became fuhrer he made sure that un-German music was nonexistent, which meant that Jazz and Swing were looked down upon due to their African and American roots.
The goal of Nazi education was to indoctrinate students with the National Socialist world view
-'Degenerate Art' was purposely held up to be mocked and then later destroyed many of the pieces.
How successful were these policies?
Boys: physical and military type activities -- target
shooting, hiking, camping, ball games, boating, biking
Girls: domestic and maternal tasks -- cooking, bearing children
Music such as Jazz and Swing were banned due to their origins ...

-'Great German Art' was glorified for all the major themes of
and celebrated classic styles and traditional nineteenth-century romanticism.
Control over teachers - 1937. That was a great way of spreading Nazism especially to the students, who were the countries future leaders.
97% of public school teachers which is around maybe 300,000 had joined the Nazi League by 1936
" I promise always to do my duty in the Hitler Youth, in love and loyalty to the Führer."
Poor quality of students- students were never really taught anything apart from 'Hitler was the greatest' and military stuff
