Lebensborn Babies

In the 1930s the Nazi party hatched a secret plan to breed an elite race of blonde blue eyed children.
Young German women were told it was their duty to have affairs with SS officers in order to create Aryan babies.
The breeding programme was managed by the Lebensborn organisation.
