What conflicts occurred in the lives of teenagers during Nazi Germany

For a teenager in 1930's Germany, Life was full of contradicting beliefs and confusion. Most teenagers in this era were involved in Hitler Youth, a massive program run by the German government that promoted Nazi views. The Hitler Youth program essentially brainwashed the nation's children into becoming infallible supporters of Hitler. Sure many families were in support of Hitler back then but still many were skeptical of the Nazi views. Imagine coming home from school just to hear your family tell you that everything that you've been told is wrong. Many children actually turned in their parents if they were not in support of Hitler. It's hard to imagine a society were children value their country more than their parents. To not agree with your parents is one thing but to imprison them for disobeying their country.
