Education was changed to train youths into becoming Nazi supporters.

Girls were taught how to be good house wives and mothers and boys were taught how to become good soldiers along with the rest of normal education.

“The chief purpose of the school is to train human beings to realize that the state is more important than the individual, that individuals must be willing and ready to sacrifice themselves for nation and Führer”

All subjects were changed to suit the Nazi ideas and to teach the Youths incorrect facts in order to brain wash them.
