Nazi Youth?
Question from Carol on 4/19/2005:

The first thing I heard after telling someone that Cardinal Ratzinger is the new Pope, was that he was part of a Nazi youth group when he was young. Is that true?

Answered on 4/26/2005:

All German teenagers were required to be. When he was of draft age he was drafted into the army, along with the rest of his seminary class. He subsequently deserted.
