    BDM in Frankreich ?


    Was there any schools, camps or houses of Bund Deutscher Mädel in France ?

    I saw some photos with girls of the BDM in Paris, but i don't know what they do here. Journeys? Work?

    thanks for your help.

    Thanks wingman,

    i already readed something about the flemish HJ/BDM. It's one more reason for me to believe that if there was some belgium HJ/BDM school, why not in france ?

    i cant find anything on the HJ/BDM in france like schools & units etc like in belgium & netherlands,but to my knowledge & what i think is that as for the flemish HJ/BDM & also flemish
    were mostly recruited from flemish nordic walloons for wallonien & langmark/algemeene
    vlaanderen divisions & as for HJ/BDM in france i guess they just did the same & integrated nordic HJ/BDM from occupied countries (france) into the HJ/BDM in germany & belgium/netherlands.,i do find stuff on the HJ in france but its only in battle e.g 12th
    panzer division Hitler-jugend falaise/Caen D-day etc,anyway thats my theory.

    Hallo.BDM came in France in some occasions during wartime,For example,this ticket for a show in Theatre de l'Empire (This ticket is not mine,I just stole the image on ebay few monthes ago)Die Spielschar des BDM Köln-Aachen came in Paris supporting german troops by singing,dancing and playing music


    In peacetime,there were probably exchange between french and german girls of youth organizations

    I think the BDM went into FRANCE to help look after the troops ie handing out coffee doing entertaining etc

    Hello all,

    thank you for these indications of possible jobs of these girls. But I was able to read on some website lists of camps for the HJ, there is no such thing for the BDM in Europe ? Nothing which allows to list the installations ? (as for the fighting units).

    Hum,according to Littlejohn's book


    No trips,no camps in France! Like Paul have said before,if they came in France that was just for entertaining the german troops
