Hitler Youth songs found on Christmas carol CD

Source: The Local

Some 50,000 CDs of Christmas carols sent to households in Germany by a children's charity actually contained the titles to pro-Nazi songs sung by the Hitler Youth movement, according to public broadcaster NDR.

Spokesman for the SOS-Kinderdorf charity, Roger Damm, told NDR on Sunday the CDs, which displayed the Hitler Youth song names instead of the Christmas carols when played on a computer, could have been hacked by a far-right group.

Both the German branch of the charity and the production company that made the CD have lodged a complaint in Munich for incitement to hatred, Damm said. Households had been informed of the incident, Damm said.

"It greatly disturbed us to discover that this CD has been adulterated on the internet with Hitler Youth titles," SOS-Kinderdorf said in a statement. "We unfortunately have no idea how this happened or who is responsible for this disgraceful deed."

1. That's a dark photo. It was taken in the last weeks of the war, when the defense of Berlin...

...was down to the very old, infirmed, and teens.

4. First they took away guns

Now it's music. Damn you Hitler and Stalin. Funky Phantom Alex Jones is bringing back the spirit 1776 while listening to Hitler Youth songs.

5. You'd think Germans would feel the one time with fascism was enough.

We've seen in our own country, there are some people who simply don't want to grow out of it.
