This book, written in 1932 by K.A. Schenzinger and first published in December 1932 is a book that was almost mandatory to read for every Hitler Youth boy in Hitler-Germany. It is a novel based on the true story of a Hitler Youth boy, Herbert Norkus, who lived in the Beusselkietz, a working-class district in Berlin. He had a Communist father but was a member of the Hitler Youth. He was killed by the Commies and just like Horst Wessel he became a martyr of the National Socialist movement. Hitlerjunge Quex was also made into a movie in 1933, subtitled “Ein Film vom Opfergeist der deutschen Jugend (Hitler Youth Quex: A film about the sacrificial spirit of German youth)”, directed by Hans Steinhoff and written by Bobby E. Lüthge and K.A. Schenzinger. A copy of this book belongs in every collection of historical Third Reich Hitler Youth material. Offered here is a nice 1940 soft cover edition with original dust jacket.
