This propaganda piece starts in 1933. Prof. Nichols' American school in Berlin is next door to a school for the Hitler Youth. Karl, from the latter, is attracted to German-American Anna, but events lead to their separation. Six years later, near the outbreak of war in Europe, Anna is removed from Nichols' school on presumption of German citizenship. Nichols becomes obsessed with finding her, as Anna undergoes a rather lurid odyssey through the Nazi nightmare. Written by

Edward Dmytryk in his biography 'It's a Hell of a Life But Not a Bad Living', states: "A friend of mine, Irving Reis, had prepared and actually started shooting a film called 'Hitler's Children', an exploitation B. Irving was rather headstrong and somewhat touchy - a bad combination in Hollywood. After a few days, he got into a fight with producer Doc Golden [Robert Golden]. Getting his back up, he quit the film, expecting, so he told me later, to win a quick apology and a free hand. Instead, the studio said, 'As you wish,' and asked me to take over the direction. He gave me his blessing, asking only that his name be completely removed from the film's credits. The studio was willing and I went to work. I finished on schedule, cut and dubbed it, and turned it over to the distribution department. None of us at the studio was sure of what we had." See more »

To the boys of Adolf Hitler, this hour can have but one meaning. At this hour when the Earth is closest to the Sun, when it is consecrating itself to the Sun, we have only one thought: we too must be close to our Sun. We too must consecrate our lives to our Sun, and the Sun that shines for us is Adolf Hitler. Attention! You will repeat after me the oath of allegiance to our Fuehrer! "I consecrate my life to Hitler."
"I am ready to sacrifice my life for Hitler."

During opening credits, the camera zooms in on a German book burning, and the book on top of the pile is "Education for Death" by Gregor Ziemer. That was another book by the same author of the novel on which this film is based. See more »
A propaganda movie,"Hitler's children " shows how the youth was brought up, and forced to consider Hitler a God;hints at Napoleon are not gratuitous:in their Sunday school lessons,children were told that if they did not obey their emperor ,they would face eternal damnation!But as the character adds:"Napoleon's speeches passed,Hitler's will and art and music will endure .
If Dmytryk is not completely convincing,it stems from the part of Karl.His motives are obscure and ceaselessly changing ;his evolution,considering his ambition and his faith in the Fürher ,does not make any sense;Anna ,on the other hand ,is true to herself from start to finish;the scene of the lashes,in front of the camp and the officers , may have inspired Verhoeven for his "starship troopers"which ,despite its limitations, is a condemnation of fascism too.
The best scene is perhaps the moment when Anna and Karl discover a young boy in the wood,gagged and bound;"it's part of the training" he says.
