Footnote: The Landjahr grew out of a much smaller program initiated in the 1920s. HJ boys (Hitler Jugend = Hitler Youth) and BDM girls (Bund Deutscher Mädel = League of German Girls) did eight months service on farms which was called Landjahr. This was for children who finished school as age fourteen, as well as older youths. The Landjahr program was only mandatory for university students. There were boarding facilities in the rural areas. At a typical camp, the children were awakened at 6:00 am for calisthenics or sport. Accommodations varied: some were newly built or moderized facilities, other were more make-shift arrangements. This involved a morning salute, farm work, care of animals, marching, singing, outdoor games, and communal living. The program was different for boys and girls. There was also some military training, as with rifle training for the boys. The children were sometimes even awakened at 1:00 am for a night march. There were also outdoor campfires for bonding. The size of the groups varied. The Landjahr were satisfied by arrangements with individual farmers.
