The HJ origins date back to as early as 1922 but officially received its name as the Hitler-Jugend, Bund deutscher Arbeiterjugend (“Hitler Youth, League of German Worker Youth”) in July 1926. From 1933 to 1945 it was the only youth organisation in Germany and practically compulsory for boys aged 14 to 18 to join. It developed into a paramilitary organisation as the war continued. Tragically the HJ were heavily involved in the defence of Berlin during early 1945.

This armband is in excellent condition. It has what looks like 4 areas (one in each corner), where the band has been fastened to maybe a board for display, very small pin-holes are present. These four areas do not deter from the look of the armband, no doubts this is an excellent example.
