Youth consecration in Berlin, the former capital of the GDR, German Democratic Republic. The consecration of the youth, also called youth celebration, is a festive act that marks the transition from youth to adulthood. The relatives were invited to the ceremony, which usually took place in a larger hall or theatre in the town. After some official speeches and the vow, they were presented with flowers and the book Of the Meaning of Our Lives, mostly by young pioneers.
