How did Hitler brainwash so many teenagers?
The Holocaust: Greek for "sacrifice by fire".
Hitler got everyone's attention because of the way that he talked. The people that he targeted his speeches at were the teenagers. He got children start preparing for the military when they were just ten years old. At ten, boys would go to a training camp that had them learning how to march, use bayonets, throw grenades, dig trenches, read maps, use chemicals, how to get under barbed wire fences and how to shoot a pistol. The girls at the age of ten would have to be able to run 60 meters in 14 seconds, throw a ball 12 meters, march for several hours, learn how to swim long distances and make a bed.
The Swastika was a symbol used thousands of years before Adolf Hitler made it the Natzi symbol. Swastika means 'well being', or 'good fortune'. The most well-known thing that the Swastika represented was the Natzi flag. After World War 1 many countries had states that tried to adopt the symbol and put it on a flag, meaning 'racially pure'.
