The Youth Dedication (East German: "Jugendweihe") is a secular counterpart to Confirmation and First Communion celebrating the transition from adolescence to adulthood.
On this day the young adults thank their parents for giving them much care, love and prepering them for a new life which brings many changes. The childhood is now a thing of the past and the door into World of adulthood is open.
This great event is celebrated with much festivity involving relatives and close acquaintances.
The Youth Dedication albums offer a special place for the very special and important photos commemorating this event for many years to come.
