The Hitler Youth (Hitler Jugend) was both the name of all youth organizations of the Third Reich (including the German Youth (Deutsche Jungvolk), the League of German Girls (Bund Deutscher Mädel), the Young Girls (Jungmädel), and the name of one of the suborganizations, for boys between 14 and 18 years old.
The Hitler Jugend was founded in 1926 as a part of the Sturmabteilung (SA). After the Nazis came to power in 1933 the non-Nazi youth organizations of the Third Reich were either disbanded or absorbed into the Hitler Jugend with the exception of the Catholic organizations which survived until 1936. Membership in the Hitler Jugend (or one of its suborganizations) was made obligatory in 1 December 1936 when the Hitler Youth Act (Gesetz über die Hitlerjugend) was passed. In 1939 the Hitler Jugend (and its suborganizations) had approximately 9 million members.
