Music in the Institutions

Show Summary Details


This chapter begins with a discussion of how the Nazi regime was bent on reviving and coordinating musical practice in conventional institutions such as schools and even the churches as well as the family, from the moment it came to power in 1933. It shows how the Hitler Youth was an integral part of the revolutionary Nazi movement, and how institutions of higher learning, like the primary and secondary schools part of a time-honored governmental bureaucracy, lacked that movement's dynamic momentum, and so they were always lagging behind in the development of a specifically Nazi curriculum.

Keywords: Nazi regime; Third Reich; family; school; Hitler Youth
