On March 26, 1943, the Reichspost issued a stamp to commemorate the ‘Day of Youth Obligation’, when all German boys and girls had to take an oath of allegiance to Adolph Hitler. Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth) was the youth organization of the Nazi Party in Germany. Its origins dated back to 1922. From 1933 it was the sole official youth organization in Germany and was partially a paramilitary organization. By 1943, Nazi leaders began turning the Hitler Youth into a military reserve to replace manpower which had been depleted due to tremendous military losses. As German casualties escalated, members of the Hitlerjugend were recruited at ever younger ages.
