WWII GERMAN HITLER YOUTH BELTS AND BELT BUCKLES
The Hitler Youth, abbreviated HJ, was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party. It existed from 1922 to 1945.
The HJ was the second oldest paramilitary Nazi group, founded one year after its adult counterpart, the
Sturmabteilung (the SA). It was made up of the Hitlerjugend proper, for male youth ages 14–18; the younger boys'
section Deutsches Jungvolk for ages 10–14; and the girls' section Bund Deutscher Mädel.
The examples shown on this page do not reflect all of the belt buckles used by the Hitler Youth. It is
possible that additional types were used. The markings found on the back of teh buckle may be different than
those shown here. It is also possible to have an authentic belt buckle that does not have any markings at all.
