Man opens another window revealing flowers in pot on window sill. Nazi flag drops down in front of window. Other Nazi flags displayed on buildings. Smoke rising from chimney drifts over rooftops. German tricolor flags and some Nazi flags displayed from apartment windows, with Vestner Tower in background. Views from boat (unseen) moving along the River Pegnitz, showing apartment building with many Nazi flags displayed, and charming old homes along the river banks. The boat passes the Museum bridge and camera focuses on lower structure carrying inscriptions praising Emperor Leopold I and King Joseph I. As boat continues camera points to Nazi flags fluttering from buildings along the river banks. The twin towers of Sebalduskirche (Saint Sebaldus Church) are seen, followed by camera panning over tops of many rows of tents meticulously aligned at a Hitler Youth camp. Gradually the camp becomes filled with Youth as the morning progresses. Closeup of boys in a drum line, playing, as others sound long trumpets. Youth getting up and preparing for the days activities. Closeup of one shining his shoes, and of others shaving and getting washed and groomed. They engage in some hijinks too, with a water hose. Later, on a field, some are seen pulling a large wagon of firewood, unloading it, and placing the logs into a furnace to heat huge cauldrons and other things at an outdoor field kitchen. Views from inside the kitchen. Cooks stirring contents of the cauldrons. One tastes approvingly. Sausages being readied for cooking. Food being dispensed to the campers who enjoy eating. Next, a crowd of boys watches as two engage in a bare-fisted boxing match. Others compete in field games of various kinds. One camper writing a letter home, inside a tent. Outside boys compete in horse and rider wrestling competitions. Closeups of boys laughing. The final scenes show campers giving one boy a high blanket toss.
