This chapter analyzes the ways in which youth movements functioned in the lives of their adherents, suggesting that these organizations came to fill the same roles as religion had for previous generations. It highlights regional differences in the practices of the youth movements. It also reviews how the interwar period treated Poland as a unified state and had been recently cobbled together from the ruins of the pre-war empires. The chapter proposes a new understanding of the mental characteristics of Jewish children and adolescents in Poland between the two world wars. It looks at the youth's feelings regarding the future of the traditional Jewish world and their solidarity and identification with their ethnic community.

Keywords:   youth movements, interwar period, pre-war empires, Jewish children, Jewish world, ethnic community
