"Dr Wirth In Holland,was the chief inspirer of the « Landbond der Dietsche Trekvogels youth movement. " This is a Dutch equivalent of the famous German community "Wandervögel" movement or "wandering birds". Dr Worth began to cooperate with them Wirth during his winter semester in Leipzig (1908). I must say that in 1920, when Wirth occurred to establish «Dietsche Trekvogels», in Europe such analog movement had already been set. Around the idea of ​​nation and nationality were then voluntarily united numerous organizations as Friesian Burschen Corporation, Enchanted Wanderer and mystical ethnographers, collectively representing a very motley structures and a variety of worldviews. There were fascist and socialists, Christian-Gnostic, and pagan, as many other spiritual trends.

«Landbond der Dietsche Trekvogels» was an association of young romantics, gravitating around the national archaic. In the movement "wandering birds", this trend is expressed by the fact that instead of magnificent celebrations of patriotic era, such as the anniversary of the Battle of Sedan, young patriots celebrated only the festival, which took place from the ancient Germans. A particular honor enjoyed the ancient pagan festival for summer solstice.

... Wirth headed the Dutch branch of "Wandervogel (wandering birds)" was set up rather as mystical anarchist, although there were also moments like later they were called "fascists." Probably, "fascism" there was just as much in the Dutch folk song, which advocated the revival of those years by Hermann Wirth ... He himself, by the way, defined the movement of "Wandervogel " without unnecessary illusions and enthusiasm, as "due time depth-psychological breakthrough on the surface of the main national type <...> do to regain the soul of the people and the homeland. Their spiritual gear were "Faust" by Goethe and "Thus Spake Zarathustra" by Friedrich Nietzsche. " With the lute and a knapsack, with a cheerful folk song, and a small volume of "Zarathustra" young Germans gathered in the streets, leaving the big cities with their hateful bourgeois boredom, faceless cosmopolitan, lack of life in the literal and figurative sense.

They walked into the woods, went to the village people meeting there for holidays solstices and equinoxes, admiring nature and an inexhaustible depth of the people's spirit. The Wandervogel despised the City of Industry, the mechanics of the business relationship, the calculation of benefits with all their hearts. Rationality - is death, fiscal discipline - is the interest bondage, sucking out their life healthy nations juice and leaving only the empty shell of reinforced concrete.

"Life - that's the first and last. The stories are always talking about life and just about life, about the triumph of the will to power, and not the victory of truth, inventions or money "(cited in:.. Spengler Oswald Der Untergang des Abendlandes Bd II, München, 1922. S.. 635).

"Always, in every age, the laws of life is stronger than the invented scheme than is externally imposed by order, deprived of its myth and its secrets. Life is more than any buckles. Therefore, anything that is not experienced and not felt is meaningless, mechanistic, detached from the living source of the vital force "(cited in: Mogge, Winfried Naturverstandnis und Kulturkritik - der Hohe Meißner als Symbol der Jugendbewegung // Jahrbuch des Archivs der Deutschen Jugendbewegung,. Witzenhausen 1985). "
