The Jugendbund der NSDAP was a group similar to the Hitler Youth, and was indeed its predecessor. It was effectively the youth section of the Sturmabteilung (SA, or Storm Troopers) and it existed between 1922 [1] and 1923 when the NSDAP was banned following the failed Munich Putsch. It contained three sections:

  • Jungmannschaften: boys aged 14 to 16 years
  • Jungsturm "Adolf Hitler": 16 to 18 years old
  • There was also a group for young German girls
