  Children of the Nazi era - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The "Nazi children" are children of the members of Nazi or Fascist parties established before or during World War II, mostly in scandinavian countries temporarily occupied by German forces.
After the Second World War the children and their mothers were viewed as outcasts by many among the general populace who felt antagonized by the war and everything that had to do with Germany.
The children and their mothers experienced isolation and many children were bullied by other kids, and sometimes by adults, due to their origin.

 ipedia.com: Children of the Nazi era Article
Nazi Germany's Lebensborn (fountain of life) plan was a human breeding plan intended to expand the "Aryan race", who were to be the new master race of Europe.
Some Lebensborn children are now trying to obtain official recognition for their past mistreatment, which some claim equates to an attempt at genocide.
Approximately 50,000 to 200,000 Polish children were kidnapped, those who after examination were deemed "aryan" enough were then sent, with falsified birth certificates, to selected families, which were told for example that they were adopting children of killed soldiers.

The Nazi regime was characterized by political control of every aspect of society in a quest for racial (Aryan, Nordic), social and cultural purity.
The Nazis also undertook programs targeting "weak" or "unfit" members of their own population, such as the T-4 Euthanasia Program that killed tens of thousands of disabled and sick Germans in an effort to "maintain the purity of the German Master race" (German: Herrenvolk) as described by Nazi propagandists.
Although Nazi hubris is often cited, Hitler presumably sought the further support of Japan and was convinced of the United States' aggressive intentions following the leaking of Rainbow Five and hearing the forboding anti-German content of Franklin Roosevelt's Pearl Harbor speech.

I'm a little disturbed by the article today on the "Lebensborn" children of Norway -- the progeny of German soldiers and local women, who were horribly mistreated after the war in a baffling inversion of Nazi persecution.
During the five-year occupation, tens of thousands of children across Europe were born of relationships between German soldiers and local women.
The worst abuses of the program itself, when children were allegedly kidnapped if they met genetic criteria, seems to have been an evolution of the program over time, rather than something essentially separate; the Jewish Virtual Library appears to endorse this view.

As many as 4,454 children chosen for Germanization were given German names, forbidden to speak Polish, and reeducated in SS or other Nazi institutions, where many died of hunger or disease.
Many more children were rejected as unsuitable for Germanization after failing to measure up to racial scientists' criteria for establishing "Aryan" ancestry; they were sent to children's homes or killed, some of them at Auschwitz of phenol injections.
An estimated total of 50,000 children were kidnapped in Poland, the majority taken from orphanages and foster homes in the annexed lands.

 1999-11-26: Ernestine Schlant
Children were not enrolled in the Hitler Youth until age 10, and by the time she got to that age the war was over.
Schlant agreed with an interviewer's suggestion that like many Germans who were children during the nazi era, as well as those who were born after the war, she struggles with the legacy left by her parents' generation.
Only recently, she said, in the fourth generation of Germans to write since the end of the nazi period, are novels beginning to deeply reflect on the Holocaust and "mourn the loss of a culture, a tradition, of individual lives, of families."

 Resistance and Subversion in Animated Films of the Nazi Era: the Case of Hans Fischerkoesen — iota
By distancing the Nazis into the stereotypes of demons and fools, we can comfortably say, "they weren't like us," and by containing them so solidly in a particular time slot, we can assure ourselves that "it can't happen here." Yet the complex truth about the Nazi era is considerably more menacing.
Similarly, while the Nazi party legally ruled Germany for only twelve years, from March 1933 until May 1945, the Nazi party existed as a minority party throughout the 1920s: Hitler was jailed in the early 1920s for terrorist activities.
But the Nazis did remain in power and it was precisely their economic success that lured many average citizens to lend them increasing support.

For instance, among the songs children learn at these camps are such classics as, "We’ll Throw Them into the Sea," "Revolution Until Victory," and "My Children in the Suicide Squads." Boys and girls as young as age six are trained in weapons handling and hand-to-hand combat.
