"In late 1946 the Communists founded the Junge Pioniere, a youth organisation designed to instil in young children a love of Marx and country."
For a gloriously nostalgic look at the Junge Pioniere, this film combines the anthem Wir Tragen die Blaue Fahne with a montage of images – a fine example of the power of propaganda. The logo 'Seid Bereit' translates as 'Be Ready' – just one of the elements that has drawn comparisons with the scouting movement.
