Reichsjugendführer was the highest paramilitary rank of the Hitler Youth. It was held first by Baldur von Schirach and later Arthur Axmann. Originally, there was no insignia for the rank, and von Schirach can be seen in documentary evidence as wearing a Nazi Party brown jacket with Hitler Youth armband. Arthur Axmann later adopted an insignia similar to that of Reichsführer-SS.
Both Axmann and von Schirach were condemned as war criminals by the leading Allies powers after the close of Second World War, in particular for the role the two Reichsjugendführer had played in corrupting the minds of children.
