Nazi board games

BBC News: "You can be confident kids in Germany in the early 1940s were playing these games... They say a lot about the Nazis, and about the German regime. Our kids were still playing trains and Meccano and hopscotch and things like that. These show how the Nazis were determined that children as young as four or five needed to get into the swing of things."

Well, yes, but look at Victorian children's games and stories too.  Let's not overidealise here.
