The article in the Daily Mail - UK web site tells of a fascinating story about 15 year old Friedhelm Huhn's time in Landjahr Lager during 1938. The article goes on to talk about the 'chilling' photographs that show how teenagers in Germany were brainwashed into supporting the fascist cause at these Hitler Youth indoctrination camps. This is far from the truth. Let me explain exactly what the Landjahr Lager (Country Service Camps) were all about.
I know first hand about Landjahr Lager because my mother wrote about her time in Landjahr Lager - in 1941 when she was in Seidorf, Niederschlesien. I currently hold her journal in my possession.
