As the quote above suggests, genocidal forcible transfer of children to armed groups or forces committing mass atrocity and/or genocide was a feature of the Nazi practice during WWII. The Hitler Youth had been subjected to a complex system of indoctrination through special camps, schools and military training opportunities.
