You should hear for yourself from some of Hitler's Children.
They too were in at the beginning and it was nothing like what it became. They had no way of knowing the results were pre-planned...
Don't take my word for it. Watch the documentary and see for yourself.
Never has a generation been so completely taken over by a totalitarian state as was the case in Hitlers Third Reich: at the age of 10 children joined the Jungvolk movement, at 14 they joined the Hitler Youth, and at 18 they joined the party, the Wehrmacht, the SA, or the SS. This 5-part documentary by Guido Knopp and the ZDF Contemporary History Department is the first comprehensive film portrayal of the young people in the Third Reich.
