The Nazi Ideal Hitler Youth, was Young, Strong, Blond Hair and Blue-eyed. By the end of 1933 all other youth organizations were banned, except Catholic groups and this came about only after an agreement between the Nazis and the Vatican.
Other non-political organizations, like the
Protestant youth-groups were absorbed into the Hitler Youth.

By 1936 all German youth were to become members of the Hitler Youth. Laws were even passed that made it compulsory to join the Hitler Youth, to the Nazis education was indoctrination, personal independence did not serve the State.
