Jugend marschiert (Her zu uns, all ihr Jungen...)

Post by Ivan Ž. » 29 May 2005 18:09

Hello, everyone

I'm looking for lyrics of the march "Jugend marschiert", which can be heard in the 1933 movie "Hans Westmar". It originally began with the line "Her zu uns, all ihr Jungen", but in the movie, another strophe was sung (it's not the 1st nor the 2nd).

Thanks in advance,
Ivan

Ivan: I can't quite remember which book it's in, but I believe one of the following books has the Youth march song that you're looking for-- if not, they definitely point towards the references necessary for you to find it.

Koch, H.W. "The Hitler Youth: Origins and Development 1922-45." London: Macdonald and Jane’s, 1975.

Peukert, Detlev. "Youth in the Third Reich.” Life in the Third Reich. ed. Richard Bessel Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1986

Rempel, Gerhard. "Hitler’s Children: The Hitler Youth and the SS." London: The University of North Carolina Press, 1989

Thanks for helping, Obdicut :) Unfortunately, I'm not able to find those books at the moment :(

Ivan: I'll keep my eye out for them, then, but I can't promise anything-- I did most of my Hitler Youth research years ago.

I'm not sure about the spelling of the words but it is approximatively this :

"Jugend sing durch die strassen, stolz mit braune gewant"

I believe the youth song is 'Jugend marschiert' by Ernst Hanfstaengl--I have it on 78s but only instrumental versions. I've got a lot of Liederbücher but the only place I remember hearing this version was in the film 'Hans Westmar'--it's played and sung at the end.

Yes, it is Hanfstaengl's (Hanns Mießner wrote the lyrics).

Note: it shouldn't be confused with the well known Geisler's "Die Jugend marschiert - Sieg Heil".

Cheers,

Hello Ivan,
It's the one that was performed at the end of Hans Westmar. It was used in Triumph des Willens as well in an orchestral version.
It's not 'Die Jugend marschiert - Sieg Heil'--I know that one as well.

Yes, that's the one, can you post the lyrics of the song?

I wish I could--I haven't been able to find them published, and the recording isn't good enough for me to transcribe the words.

The only thing I get is something like this:

Jugend ziehn durch die Strassen,
stolz im braunen Gewand,

usw.

Other than that, it is too poor quality :(

Dear all,

I am new here. Please let me introduce myself.
I am 43 years old and I have been collecting pre-1945 german recordings and song books for quite a few years now. I think I've got most of the CDs available on the market . Also I am happy to have around 45 Liederbücher in my collection + a few original 78rpm Schellack records. However, I am still far from having the knowledge that some of you have...

Could anyone of you provide me with the lyrics of the song from 'Hans Westmar' sung by SA men when they leave the SA camp for a big demonstration in the center of Berlin. It is also sung at the very end of the film, after the 'Horst Wessel Lied'. The melody is that of 'Jugend marschiert' (composed by E. Hanfstaengl) and it seems that it starts with "Jugend zieht durch die Strassen, stolz im braunen Gewand..."

Thank you in advance !
M.

I think I have a couple of instrumental versions on 78s but none with vocals. I think it was also used in Triumph of the Will, during the scene when Hitler's Mercedes is being driven around the stadium and being saluted by the HJ, DJ, BdM, JM, etc.

(Sorry, I was away for the weekend…)
Actually, in ‘Triumph of the will’ it is played after Lutze’s speech and the fireworks. The Hitlerjugend sequence opens with a very impressive view on a HJ trumpet bell, followed by DJ drummers and the band plays ‘Jugend marschiert’ (not to confuse with ‘Die Jugend marschiert mit frohem Gesang’ that they also play immediately after…) Note that the tune played while Hitler is being driven around the stadium is ‘Vorwärts ! Vorwärts !’.

The instrumental version is well known and often called ‘Hitlerjugendmarsch’ on CDs, although the real title seems to have been ‘Jugend marschiert’. I believe it was originally composed by Ernst Hanfstaengl for the film ‘Hans Westmar’ but the only version with vocals that I know is in the film itself. By the way, I find it interesting that Hanfstaengl also composed the funeral march of ‘Hans Westmar’, with a very similar title: ‘Jugend trauert’.
