Der Pimpf was the Nazi magazine for boys, particularly those in the Deutsches Jungvolk, with adventure and propaganda. It first appeared in 1935 as Morgen, changing its name to Der Pimpf in 1937; its publication frequency went down with the war.
Origin of name
The word Pimpf is slang for any member of the German Youth Movement, but later especially of the Deutsches Jungvolk, the youngest tier of the Hitler Youth. Its meaning in Upper German is "boy", "little rascal", "scamp", or "rapscallion", originally "little fart".
