Algemeen Nederlands Jeugd Verbond was a political youth movement in the Netherlands. ANJV was founded on June 15, 1945 in Concert building, Amsterdam. The ANJV was an independent youth organisation inspired by, and with links, to the Communistische Partij van Nederland (Communist Party of the Netherlands).
Contrary to popular believe the ANJV was not the youth organisation of the CPN, but had an independent broad "all-youth" structure, similar to that of the East-German FDJ. This as opposed to the Jonge Socialisten or the JovD which are directly related to the PvdA and the VVD respectively.
The ANJV was finally dissolved in 2005 after 60 years.
The predecessor of ANJV was Communistische Jeugd Holland.
ANJV was a member of World Federation of Democratic Youth.
