On view from February 1 to November 12, 2023, the Alsace-Moselle Memorial's new exhibition "Intoxicated! Youth under the Nazi boot" reveals the indoctrination to which children were subjected from an early age in the totalitarian Nazi regime.
The indoctrination had an impact on all the activities boys and girls engaged in on a daily basis. Intoxication took place in the home, at school and in the cultural, sporting and educational activities offered by mass movements such as the Hitler-Jugend.
The exhibition "Intoxicated! Youth under the Nazi boot" explores a subject rarely tackled, and for the first time presents collections and documents from the reserves of the Alsace-Moselle Memorial.
The exhibition echoes the subject of the Concours National de la Résistance et de la Déportation 2022-2023, "Schools and the Resistance, from the dark days to the aftermath of the Liberation (1940-1945)".
Guided tours of the exhibition and events around this theme are scheduled throughout the year.
