NAZI MOTHERS DISPLEASED [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 3 May 1940
NAZI MOTHERS DISPLEASED The decree ordering service in the Hitler Yotith to be compulsory as from April 20 is apparently not popuI lar with Nazi mothers. The following placatory broadcast indicates the .situation: "A mother has complained that children have to. take part on the Hitler Youth ser vice in war time. "The -youth of the cduntry must take .its share of war worlk.on the home front. Many mothers may not be pleased at the. demands now being made on youth, such as boys return ing home' tired in the evenings and then having to go out to Hitler Youth meetings. :"We hope :though that parents' will, realise the significance of the Hitler Youth schooling in- war. We hope that you niothers will no longer have any doubts about the'desirability of this Hitler Youth leadership." It looks as though some mothers were courageous enough to give the Nazis some of the rough side of their tongues.
