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