Could anybody explain me about Hitlermadchen? I suppose is the feminine branch of the Hitlerjugend, but i am no sure.

The BDM, "Bundes Deutscher Madel" (spelling?) or "League of German girls" was the opposite to the Hitler Youth. Their task, when they were old enough, was to find a suitable SS man, or an Aryan, and to provide as many children as possible, so Germany had "future soldiers." That is often where Lebensborn came into it. I don't know much about what they did before they were of age though, but i hope that helps you. Cheers. :)

Here is a site about the B.D.M. In addition to information about the history and structure of the organization, activities during peacetime and war, the pages include photos - many vintage, and some recent images of BDM collectibles (uniforms, patches, etc.)
