Das deutsche Mädel

Publié le par Roger Cousin

Rüdiger JuttaAugust 1941 cover of Das deutsche Mädel and the first issue following the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union. The caption reads "Weary and ruined faces characterize the neglected children of the Soviet state. Cheerful and healthy on the other hand, the youth of Greater Germany are participating in sports festivals everywhere in the country." Das deutsche Mädel (The German Girl or Maiden) was the Nazi magazine aimed at German girls, particularly members of League of German Girls.

Unlike the adventure orientation of Der Pimpf, intended for Hitler Youth, Das deutsche Mädel urged hiking, tending the wounded, hard work in factories, and preparing for motherhood. On the other hand, in contrast to the woman's magazine with some propaganda, NS-Frauen-Warte, it lay far more emphasis on the strong and active German woman; health, education, service, and sports all featured, and famous women depicted included doctors, athletes, poets, and pilots.

Articles in it included describing a speech by Jutta Rüdiger when she was appointed to lead The League of German Girls, telling the girls of their duties to Germany, and a story of how Young Girls had ensured that a dead father's promise to his son was fulfilled.
