Artifact of the month
Before and during World War II, the Nazi Party organized the Hitler Youth program from 1926 to 1945, and indoctrinated in Nazi ideology. The Hitler Youth wore uniforms, similar to the Nazi officers, including a belt buckle (as seen in the image). This belt buckle states the program's motto: Blut und Ehre ("blood and honor").*
*Note: the museum has a collection of World War II artifacts brought back from the war by Sapulpan soldiers (these artifacts include American, Nazi/German, French, Italian, Japanese weaponry, clothes, photos, etc.) - We do not promote any ideology.
