A Visit from the Hitler Youth League

A fascinating and creepy article about visits to Japan by the Hitler Youth League and how impressed people were by these strong, lockstepping, clean-cut Aryan punks. Their stay, which included a trip to Yasukuni Shrine and a climb of Mount Fuji, played a role in the establishment of a similar youth movement in Japan, the Dai-Nippon Seishonen-dan.

 For the health of societies everywhere, wouldn’t it be nice to spend about 30 percent of our school years in classes teaching us to distrust the power of appearances?
