NS German Students

The National Socialist German Students League (German: Nationalsozialistischer Deutscher Studentenbund, abbreviated NSDStB) was founded in 1926 as a division of the Nazi Party with the mission of integrating University-level education and academic life within the framework of the National Socialist worldview. Organized (as with other departments of the Nazi Party) strictly in accord with the Führerprinzip (or "leader principle") as well as the principle of Machtdistanz (or "power distance"), the NSDStB housed its members in so-called Kameradschaftshäusern (or "Fellowship Houses"), and (from 1930) had its members decked out in classic brown shirts and its own distinctive Swastika emblems.

NS German Student Union

The Deutsche Studentenschaft (DSt) was from 1919 to 1945 the union of the general student committees of all German universities including Danzigs, Austria as well as the formerly German universities in the Czechoslovakia. Originally founded as a democratic representation of interests, the DSt was already in the early 1920s in serious internal clashes between republican minority and ethnic majority wing. Since 1931 the NS student union was dominated, the DSt 1936 in fact was put together with this and finally 1945 as an NS organization banned.

NS Studentischer Einsatz

NS Student Service

In 1934 the compulsory six-month work service was introduced to the students of both sexes. It was regarded as a test of probation and thus as a reading instrument for the admission of a study. At the same time, he was attempting to put the national community ideology into practice. In working camps, young people from all walks of life should live together, work, be politically trained and be able to exercise their skills. As a rule, male students were used in a colony manner during heavy physical work (eg in dyke or road construction, in earthworks and dewatering, etc.). Female students were frequently assigned to individual families as "workmaids", working in agriculture or within the framework The National Socialist National Welfare. [76] The subjective experience of the workforce was very different, as a rule the end of the work service was facilitated. Whether it proved to be a suitable instrument for selection and communion seems questionable.

Another concept, which concerned the student's everyday life, was the "student assignment". It could be carried out voluntarily as factory or land service as well as harvesting in the semester holidays. The participation was rather moderate, so from 1937 onwards stronger pressure was exerted and in the summer of 1939 by the Reichstudenten leadership a general "Harvesting obligation for all members of the German student body" proclaimed. On the other hand, there were violent protests and also possibilities to evade this arrangement, without having to reckon with sanctions. This has been used extensively.

NS Frauensshaft

(Deutsches Frauenwerk)

NS Women's League

The National Socialist Women's League (German: Nationalsozialistische Frauenschaft, abbreviated NS-Frauenschaft) was the women's wing of the Nazi Party. It was founded in October 1931 as a fusion of severalnationalist and National Socialist women's associations.

The Frauenschaft was subordinated to the national party leadership (Reichsleitung); girls and young women were the purview of the Bund Deutscher Mädel (BDM). From February 1934 to the end of World War II in 1945, the NS-Frauenschaft was led by Reich's Women's Leader (Reichsfrauenführerin) Gertrud Scholtz-Klink (1902–1999). It put out a biweekly magazine, the NS-Frauen-Warte.

Its activities included instruction in the use of German-manufactured products, such as butter and rayon, in place of imported ones, as part of the self-sufficiency program, and classes for brides and schoolgirls. During wartime, it also provided refreshments at train stations, collected scrap metal and other materials, ran cookery and other classes, and allocated the domestics conscripted in the east to large families. Propaganda organizations depended on it as the primary spreader of propaganda to women.

The NS-Frauenschaft reached a total membership of 2 million by 1938, the equivalent of 40% of total party membership.

The German National Socialist Women's League Children's Group was known as "Kinderschar".

NS Flyers Corps

The National Socialist Flyers Corps (German: Nationalsozialistisches Fliegerkorps; NSFK) was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party that was founded April 15, 1937 as a successor to the German Air Sports Association; the latter had been active during the years when a German air force was forbidden by the Treaty of Versailles. The organization was based closely on the organization of the Sturmabteilung (SA) and maintained a system of paramilitary ranks closely associated with the SA. A similar group was the National Socialist Motor Corps.

During the early years of its existence, the NSFK conducted military aviation training in gliders and private airplanes. When Nazi Germany formed the Luftwaffe, many NSFK members transferred to it. As all such prior NSFK members were also Nazi Party members; this gave the new Luftwaffe a strong Nazi ideological base in contrast to the other branches of the German military, who were composed of "Old Guard" officers from the German aristocracy.

NSKG

NS Kultur Gemeinde

NS Cultural Community

The centralization of the entire cultural life was carried out by the establishment of cultural monitoring and politicization organizations, such as the Reichskulturkammer (RKK), the Kampfbund für Deutsche Kultur (KfdK) and the NS-Gemeinschaft Kraft durch Freude (KdF), in which both practitioners and recipients Organized and controlled. This, in turn, was the prerequisite for politically instrumentalizing the individual areas.

In May 1933 the Kfdk was recognized by Hitler as a cultural organization of the NSDAP. Throughout the period, however, he remained an unofficial party organization not authorized by the government. The organizational and financial basis of the KfdK was therefore always in the NSDAP and never in the government. This fact is important in that it reveals a problem, which led to a victory in the competition for the "cultural eminence" of Goebbels.

With the establishment of the RKK in November 1933, Rosenberg lost more and more competences. Goebbels, with the state-recognized RKK from now on, had the say and the cultural eminence. Rosenberg was established in January 1934 in the office of Rosenberg, newly founded by Hitler, as the commissioner of the Fiihrer for the supervision of the entire intellectual and ideological training and education of the NSDAP. On June 6, 1934, the KfdK and Deutsche Bühne were merged into a cultural umbrella organization, the NS-Kulturgemeinde (NSKG), which in turn was subordinated to the Amt für Kunstpflege in the Amt Rosenberg and thus anchored in the Reichsleitung der NSDAP. In addition, the new organization was incorporated into Robert Ley's leisure organization power through joy (KdF).

The task of the cultural community supervised by Rosenberg consisted primarily in the "restoration of a close link between culture and the people.".

Even if the NSKG had finally received the institutional backing that Rosenberg had long wanted to establish, the inclusion of Rosenberg 's cultural - political end was the result. The Rosenberg office, and thus the NSKG, was financed by the German Labor Front (DAF). In the following years, the NSKG finally became NS in 1937 after the tensions between the head of the DAF, Robert Ley and Rosenberg, which had arisen out of competition between the two organizations KdF and NSKG due to unclear areas of competence (KdF) directly and finally transferred to the DAF. Thus, Rosenberg had finally lost the battle for the imperial superintendence of the Third Reich.

The National Socialist Motor Corp was a paramilitary organization of the Nazi Party (NSDAP) that officially existed from May 1931 to 1945. The group was a successor organization to the older National Socialist Automobile Corps (NSAK), which had existed since April 1930.

The NSKK served as a training organization, mainly instructing members in the operation and maintenance of high-performance motorcycles and automobiles. The NSKK was further used to transport NSDAP and SA officials/members. The NSKK also served as a roadside assistance group in the mid-1930s. With the outbreak of World War II NSKK ranks were recruited to serve in the transport corps of various German military branches. There was also a French section of the NSKK which was organized after the German occupation of France began in 1940. The NSKK was the smallest of the Nazi Party organizations.

NSL

NS Lehrerbund

NS Teachers League

The National Socialist Teachers League (German: Nationalsozialistische Lehrerbund, NSLB), was established on 21 April 1929. This organization lasted until 1943.

This organization saw itself as "the common effort of all persons who saw themselves as teachers or wanted to be seen as educators, independently from background or education and from the type of educational institution". Its goal was to make the National Socialist worldview and foundation of all education and especially of schooling. In order to achieve this it sought to have an effect on the political viewpoint of educators, insisting on the further development of their spirit along Nationalsocialist lines. Organized mountain excursions in places called Reichsaustauschlager (Exchange Camps of the Reich) were perceived as helping in this purpose.

After the Nazi takeover of power in 1933 the Nazi Party validated the NSLB as the sole organization of teachers in the German Reich (membership was not compulsory). In July 1935 the NSLB was merged with the existing organization of lecturers to form theNationalsozialistischer Deutscher Dozentenbund (NSDDB) (National Socialist German Lecturers League).

The Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt (NSV), meaning "National Socialist People's Welfare" was a social welfare organization during the Third Reich. The NSV was established in 1933, shortly after the NSDAP took power in Germany.

The structure of the NSV was based on the Nazi Party model, with local, county (Kreis) and group administrations.

The NSV became established as the single Nazi Party welfare organ in May 1933. The régime deemed it worthy to be called the "greatest social institution in the world." One method of expansion was to absorb, or in NSDAP parlance coordinate, already existing but non-Nazi charity organizations. NSV was the second largest Nazi group organization by 1939, second only to the German Labor Front (RAD).

During World War II, the NSV took over more and more governmental responsibilities, especially in the fields of child and youth labor.

NSV was often discriminating against Jews since they didn't belong to the German 'People's community', and refused to provide aid to them.

The Reichsbund der Deutschen Beamten (RDB, also known as NS-Beamtenbund (National Socialist Civil Servants Federation), was the trade union for German State Officials during the Third Reich. The RDB was established as an organization affiliated to the Nazi party in October 1933. Although it was not compulsory for RDB members to be Nazi party members, most of them chose to be. In addition to the training and development of its members, the RDB ensured that German Civil Servants toed the line of the Nazi Party.

 

Other branches of civil servants were gouverned by the RDB, such as for example the Kameradschaftsbund deutscher Polizeibeamten (Reich Federation of German Civil Servants) and the Reichbund der Wehrmachtbeamten

Kameradschaftsbund deutscher Polizeibeamten

Reich Federation of German Civil Servants

Prior to the Third Reich, there was no unified police force in Germany. Each constituent state (Land) had its own. After coming to power in January 1933, the National-Socialist regime wanted a national police force controlled by the central government. To accomplish this, they began to put their own officials in executive positions in each state’s police forces and began a slow purge of the ranks to eliminate so-called undesirable elements. From January 1934 onwards, various national decrees subordinated each Land Police force to the Reich Interior Ministry. This process culminated in June 1936, when Hitler appointed Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler as Chief of German Police (Chef der Deutschen Polizei).

Within days, Himmler began to reorganize the newly unified German Police. One of his actions was to disband existing fraternal police associations and institute the national Fraternal Order of German Police Officials as the sole, authorized fraternal association. Nominally part of the National League of German Civil Servants (Kameradschaftsbund Deutscher Polizeibeamten), in actuality, it was almost exclusively controlled by the SS.

The Kameradschaftsbund had three main purposes: 1) As a beneficial association it maintained vacation homes and social and recreational facilities; 2) It looked after the general welfare of its members and their families by providing group life and health insurance; and 3) It assisted members in personal emergencies. From a political standpoint it carried out ideological indoctrination within the police force in cooperation with the SS. Finally, as a professional organization, it ran police skiing and mountaineering schools in Germany’s Alpine regions on behalf of the national uniformed police force (Ordnungspolizei).

Reichsverband des Kraftfahrgewerbes

Reichsverband of the motor vehicle industry

On the 16th / 17th In April 1928, the association was renamed "Reichsverband der Kraftfahrzeughandel und -gewerbes e. V." (RDK). With the founding of the "Reichsinnungsverband für die Kraftfahrzeughandwerk" on May 1, 1935 in Berlin, the car repair business was officially recognized as an independent trade. For the first time, this resulted in an organizational separation of trade and craftsmanship and the departure of crafts from the DAHV. The chief executive was Kaspar Aßhoff, Reichsinnungsmeister was Friedrich Stupp.

 

Among the National Socialists was the "Gleichschaltung" of the DAHV in 1935. The association was compulsorily as a "specialist group motor vehicles, fuel and garages" a link of the "economic group retail" and part of the "Reichsgruppe Handel". In 1938 there was a binding introduction of new "standard conditions for the sale of motor vehicles" for the motor vehicle industry and trade. After the Second World War 1946 a parallel acting "Interessengemeinschaft der Kfz-Handwerks" was founded.

 

The below is a Google translation of a German article. (find it here).

 

Societies from 1933 to 1945.

 

The German angling under the sign of the Hakenkreuz from 1933 to 1945.

 

To conclude my previous observations on the development of the German angligship from 1866 to 1933, I went on to say that the "Reichsverband Deutscher Sportfischer" (RDS) is not based on the "Deutsche Angler-Bund" (DAB) and also on the basis the "Arbeitsgemeinschaft deutscher Anglerbünde" (ADA). Rather, the "Reichsverband Deutscher Sportfischer" was founded "in its place" on the basis of the existence of the "Arbeiter-Angler-Bund Deutschland" (AABD).

 

Historically, I find this process extremely remarkable.

 

A documentary about this, in which interesting details about the course of events are presented, I found in an article of the "Deutsche Anglers-Zeitung" of July 1, 1933. It stated:

 

"In the course of the month of April this year, the Reichsleitung of the NSDAP occupied the office of the Arbeiter-Anglingsbundes eV in Berlin ... and charged with the examination of the management of the party committee Friedrich Linsert.

 

After examination, which according to the testimony of Mr. Linsert gave no cause for complaints, the workers' fishing association was dissolved and the "Reichsverband Deutscher Sportangler e.V." was founded in Berlin. As a substitute for the organ of the dissolved covenant, "The Free Angler" was on 1 May ds. Js. a 'newsletter of the RDS'. In a notice contained therein, expressed the view that the other anglican confederations existing in Germany also follow the course of the time and join the RDS. want to connect. "

 

The government press published the following order on these operations:

"The Commissioner of the Office for Agricultural Policy of the NSDAP (Reichsleitung), Department for Fisheries Affairs of Division B. - A.R. Giese Berlin - has, within the scope of his duties, entrusted to the party-keeper Linsert the management of the business of the association, and thus the presidency, for the reorganization of the organization of the fishing trade, and also as president of the Reichsverband DeutscherSportangler e.V. "

 

The question now arises as to why the "Reichsverband Deutscher Sportangler eV" was founded out of the "Arbeiter-Angler-Bund Deutschlands e.V." and not from the "German Angler-Bund e.V.". I could not find an answer to this from any of the available sources. It is to be assumed that the workers 'angling federation of Germany, which at that time is growing year by year, played a more central and, therefore, more competent role than the working group of German anglers' societies with the German Anglers Confederation. Thus the AABD might be recognized as the better basis for an imminent reorganization of fishing. And, last but not least, it was about the destruction of a workers' organization, which never made a secret of its sympathy with the aims of the Social Democracy. Thus a well-functioning structure could be used, while at the same time political confessions could be eliminated in favor of the Social Democrats. Later, following the "course of time," the DAB also joined the RDS.

 

The chairman, Linsert, appointed by the Reich leadership of the NSDAP, called on the German anglers to recognize the time, not to stand aside, and help to promote the great goal of the reconstruction.

 

The "Reichsverband Deutscher Sportfischer" (Reichsverband Deutscher Sportfischer) existed as a compulsory alliance of all German anglers.

He passed the Reichsnährstand, Hauptabteilung IV, Department of Fisheries.

One of the first tasks of the RDS was the publication of the press organ

 

It should be noted that from August 1934, the association was renamed "Reichsverband Deutscher Sportfischer" (RDSF).

 

In addition, the illustrated booklet for fishing and fishing sport "Der Angelsport", which is described as a supplementary sheet and illustrated here, appeared.

 

"The Angelsport" was a magazine, which was already founded at the end of 1924 as the first independent fishing magazine of Germany, which was in 1933 in the ninth edition year.

Both magazines were published by Angelsport-Verlag Paul Rauser Berlin.

The task of influencing the members of the association in the national socialist spirit, however, fulfilled from the outset the magazine "Der deutsche Sportangler".

The further development of the RDSF until 1945.

 

At the turn of the year 1934/35, there were some radical changes at the leadership level of the RDSF. Not only did the constitution change, but there was no longer the function of a president from this point onwards. At the beginning of 1935, therefore, RDSF from the following functions: Association leader, Stellv. Association leader and association manager. From the greetings of the leader of the association at the turn of the year 1934/35, it is clear that the alliance of all German sportsmen has not yet been achieved. In a newspaper contribution, Linsert presents the following: "... It must above all be our endeavor to make the RDSF an exemplary association. I will announce the hitherto still partial indifference. "Structurally speaking, there were Gaue, districts and clubs in the RDSF. In 1935, it was ordered to improve the functioning of all anglers' associations, which are located in one place. They can respectively have respectively the strength up to 800 members. From February 1938, the Gaue was renamed Oberbezirke because only the NSDAP was entitled to use the word "Gau" as a subdivision. On April 19, 1939 the "Act on the Fishing Act" came into effect. The basic principle was laid down as follows: "Any person who carries out fishing activities (catching fish, crabs, oysters and other mussels, sea mules and frogs, as far as they are subject to fishing) must carry a fishing vessel marked on their behalf and bearing a visual image "The impact of the war on the German anglership.On October 1939, by the association leader Aumert (Friedrich Linsert was now replaced by a criminal offense) a call for the RDSF to all its members. It was about the seeding of the water from the point of view of using the fish as a "large food reserve for the whole German people". It is said in the individual sections. "Now the time has come to make this food reserve usable. I therefore urge all the clubs, with their own and leased waters, to undertake a planned watercatch. Each kilogram of fish is full replacement for one kilo of meat. ... Associations with their own network are able to carry out the fats themselves; the other clubs have to deal with a professional fisherman because of the seizure ... It is a commandment of comradeship that those comrades, who are given ample catches, remember the families whose brethren are fighting with our brave troops. " so for the first time, against the anglers, a governmental measure, which is directly related to the second world war, has begun. In 1941 the RDSF had 122,000 members, who were organized in 26 districts. The total use of war required drastic structural changes On May 3, 1943, the "Reichsverband Deutscher Sportfischer" was integrated into the "Reichsverband der Deutschen Fischerei" (German Reichsverband der Deutschen Fischerei) as a group IV for the duration of the war, in order to simplify the administration and carry out the total use of the war. From this point onwards, he received the designation "Reichsbund Deutscher Sportfischer". He remained a registered association and also kept his own financial administration. In September 1943 I found the following message from the Angelsport publishing house Paul Rauser: "With the present book, the German sportsman temporarily takes leave of his readers. The war economy requires the greatest concentration of all forces. This summary makes it necessary for our magazine to discontinue its publication until further notice, in order to free people and material for warlike purposes. It is to be assumed that, in adaptation to the events of the war years 1944 and 1945, the existing fishing organizations in the various levels adapted to the events of the war years 1944 and 1945 their work independently. Guidance on this was probably made by the management by circular letters.

Reichsfachschaft Deutscher Hebammen

Association of German Midwives

The “Reichsfachschaft Deutscher Hebammen” (RDH) emerged in 1933 within the context of the forced dissolution and conformity of professional associations. Its organization was strictly hierarchical, following the “Führerprinzip” (so-called leader principle). The RDH remained in existence until 1945 and was affiliated with the Reichsministerium des Inneren (Reich Ministry of the Interior); from 1939, it was under the Reichminister’s direct control. Through this subordination, midwives fell under the control of the Nazi regime. As a result, the association had no autonomy whatsoever in professional issues. The only rights it retained were the right to assembly and to state its views.

RDK

Reichbund der Kinderreichen

Reich's Union of Large Families

Reichsbund der Kinderreichen (RDK) or (RdK), Reich's Union of Large Families or, literally: "Reich's League of those wealthy in children", was one of the most important pronatalist groups founded in Germany after World War I. To qualify as a member of this league a family should have at least four children. Widows were also admitted.

The German Large Family League was forcefully nazified after the Nazi takeover of power in 1933. As such its goal became the preservation and promotion of the German hereditarily healthy Aryan family ("Erhaltung und Förderung der deutschen, erbgesunden, arischen Familie").

The RDK was renamed Reichsbund Deutsche Familie, Kampfbund für erbtüchtigen Kinderreichtum (German Family Reich's League, Struggle League for a Hereditarily Strong Offspring), in April 1940, in the first years of World War II. Its new acronym became RDF and became essentially a propaganda organization, promoting marriages and natality among the youth despite the war-related difficulties.

The Reichskolonialbund (RKB) was a collective body that absorbed all German colonial organisations during the time of the Third Reich.

The purpose of the Reichskolonialbund was to reclaim the overseas colonies that Germany had lost as a result of the Treaty of Versailles at the end of World War I. The first efforts in rallying support for a re-establishment of a German Colonial Empire in Germany can be traced back to 1923. As a result, a number of pro-colonial organisations, supported by both conservative-minded Germans and nationalists, were established in different parts of Germany. Founded in 1925, the foremost outfit was the Koloniale Reichsarbeitsgemeinschaft (KORAG). This organisation, along with other groups, led to the foundation of the preliminary Reichskolonialbund in 1933. The establishment was made in two steps, the second one being its incorporation (Gliederung) into the Nazi Party structure; as a result many references give two different years for the Nazi Reichskolonialbund foundation, 1933 and 1936.

The Reichsluftschutzbund (RLB) was an organization in Nazi Germany in charge of air raid precautions in residential areas and among smaller businesses.

The RLB was in charge of educating and training ordinary German men and women in civil defense procedures necessary for the basic level of local self-help of the civil population against air raids.

The training include fire fighting, protection against chemical weapons, communication procedures and preparation of houses and apartments against air raids.
