Alexander Schmorell and Hitler Youth

Since I was too young [for the SA], I was transferred to Hitler Youth on March 1, 1934. I belonged to Hitler Youth for a very short time. …

[When speaking of the medals he was awarded for participation in the Anschluss and the annexation of the Sudetenland:] “When I was 15 – 16 years old and belonged to Jungvolk and Hitler Youth, I was even excited about these things. But this interest abated more and more.”
