Does anyone know of a place where I can find info about Hitler Youth units and their histories?

Hmmm that turns out to be somewhat vague.

If you can't read them download the pictures to your own computer and look at them then. It should be clearer then.

If not, send me your e-mail adress by PM and I'd be happy to forward the pictures to you that way. They'll be perfectly readable then for sure.

Hello Panzergrenadier1944!
Does anyone know of a place where I can find info about Hitler Youth units and their histories?
The best book that probably will answer your question us Hans Holzträger's "In a Raging Inferno - Combat Units of the Hitler Youth 1944-1945" (Helion 2000). I would say that this book is as detailed as it ever going to be on this particular subject. Also, many photographs and as such a highly recommended buy/read...

In a Raging Inferno is the first English-language book ever to recount the story of the Hitler Youth and its combat role at the end of World War II. During the desperate final months of the Third Reich boys (and girls) as young as ten were thrown into action against the advancing British, American and Soviet armies, frequently fighting with a fanatical and suicidal fury. The author spent many years collecting material and interviewing veterans of the Hitler Youth combat units. The result is a fascinating - and sometimes disturbing - account, packed with eyewitness accounts and rare photographs. In addition, well-known military artist Stephen Andrew has produced 4 superb pages of colour uniform plates. A new paperback reprint of a highly acclaimed book. - Paperback reprint of a highly-acclaimed account of the young boys (and girls) thrown into action against the advancing Allied armies by the Third Reich - Many eyewitness accounts - Over 100 rare photographs, many previously unpublished - 4 pages of colour uniform plates by noted artist Stephen Andrew

These pictures are excellent and a credit to you Holtingar
I have a DVD named Hitler Youth (probably banned in some countries) which I bought at a cheapy discount shop for $5.99
It is exempt from classification
This is the story of an organisation with a membership of only thirteen thousand in 1930 to over ten million in 1945.
The Hitler youth was the future of the German Third Reich,the dream died with Hitler.

Thank you for the kind words, German Born, finding all those pics took a lot of work.
Your link (rajon) didn't work however. I'll try again sometime.

Holzträger was a member of the HJ, BTW.
Always in need for info about: Dutchmen in the NSKK, HJ and TeNo.
