BACKGROUND: The AHS, Adolf Hitler Schools were established on January 15TH 1937 by Reichsjugendführer, (National Youth Leader), Baldur von Schirach and Deutsche Arbeits Front, (German Labor Front), Reichsorganisationleiter, (National Organization Leader), Dr. Robert Ley, to provide free elitist education to select male DJ and HJ members. The first Adolf Hitler school was opened in April 1937 and originally it was envisioned that each of the forty-two German Gau's would have its own AH school but only twelve were established by 1940 when wartime conditions halted any further expansion. The courses were originally intended to last six years but wartime conditions shortened the program to five years. On reaching the age of twelve, DJ members went through a competitive selection procedure for enrollment into a AH school with only a limited number of the most promising being chosen as students with an eye on producing future leaders for the highest Military and Political postings. On selection the DJ boys retained their standard DJ uniform and on reaching the age of fourteen the boys would become HJ members and exchange their DJ uniforms for HJ uniforms.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: White, cotton/rayon blend construction pants feature the unique, naval style, front closure in the form of a horizontally rectangular, fold down, front yoke panel with four, stitched, button eyelets to the top edge with corresponding buttons on the waistband. The front yoke panel folds down from the waistband revealing two, small, horizontal, inner panels with two, vertically aligned, buttons on the right side panel and dual, corresponding, stitched, button eyelets on the left side panel. For a secure closure the vertically aligned, inner buttons would be button first then the front yoke panel would be buttoned up onto the waistband. When in the closed position the front yoke panel has opened, vertical, slashes at each side allowing access to internal, front, pockets. The waistband has a small, inverted, "V" slash to the reverse center with an inserted, triangular panel and three, vertically aligned, stitched, eyelets to each side, designed for a fit adjustment tie string. The waistband also has a single, stitched, eyelet to each side, designed to secure the pants to the shirt. The pants have wide legs with a slight, outward, flare at the straight cut, non-adjustable, dual-ply hemmed, cuffs. The straight cut, outwardly flared, cuffs were designed to assist the wearer if he was required to swim. The buttons are the alloy dish type and appear to have their original stitching. The pants are roughly size 26" waist. To the interiors is sewn a oilcloth HJ/RZM, "Reichszeugmeisterei" (National-materiel-control-office) "Hose" tag. Also, stamped are the letters "AHS" in a box for "Adolf Hitler Schule". Show the expected light age yellowing, but overall excellent condition. Rare.
