Original German WWII Field Used HJ Member Armband with Embroidered Insignia - German Youth Organization

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This jugend (HJ) Armband is in very good used condition. Unlike many that we have seen, this example definitely was worn and laundered over time, so it definitely saw use in the field.

The band is red with a white center stripe, with the usual applied HJ diamond with an embroidered swas (hook cross). A very nice HJ Armband, especially if you like examples that have the battle-hardened look provided of a bit of period wear.

The HJ or jugend, and often abbreviated as HJ in German, was the youth organization of the NSDAP Party in Germany. Its origins dated back to 1922 and it received the name AH-Jugend, Bund deutscher Arbeiterjugend ("HJ, League of German Worker Youth") in July 1926. From 1933 until 1945, it was the sole official youth organization in Germany and was partially a paramilitary organization; it was composed of the HJ proper for male youths aged 14 to 18, the German Youngsters in the HJ (Deutsches Jungvolk in der AH Jugend or "DJ", also "DJV") for younger boys aged 10 to 14, and the League of German Girls (Bund Deutsche Mädel or "BDM").
