One Lebensborn emblem was a red Lebensrune - the Life Rune. Far from just the 'Nazi breeding farms' that our enemies claim the Lebensborn to be, the Lebensborn  provided social and emotional support to young German families, they provided medical advice and run classes for young mothers on all aspects of childcare. They also shared their Lebensrune logo with other organisations that trained doctors and other healthcare workers. When I see this emblem - the Life Rune - I am reminded of the quote by Nietzsche,

 Pagans are those who say YES to life, for whom ‘god’ is the word for the great Yes to all things.
