Abstract

This project examines Nazi education systems and the effect they had on the children who participated in them, as well as on the Nazi movement as a whole. The project analyzes the incredible effectiveness of these systems and the way they were able to cultivate so much power by using tactics that were both persuasive to students and parents as well as successful within educational settings. Using developmental psychology, namely work by Lev Vytgotsky and Erik Erikson, this project aims to explain the mass buy-in to Nazi education systems, as well as their specific importance to the success of the Nazi movement. The project uses work by Claudia Koonz and Michael Kater on the specifics of Nazi schools and the Hitler Youth program.
