The Völkisch-Social Bloc ("Völkisch-Sozialer Block" or "Völkisch-Sozialer-Block" or "VSB" or "V-S-B") was a right-wing electoral alliance in post World War I Germany. Its philosophy was loosely aligned with that of the NSDAP (Nazi Party).[1]

Artur Dinter was elected in 1924 to the Thuringian Landtag as a representative of the VSB.

Rudolf Jordan was active as a speaker for the VSB by 1924, though he was not a member. Jordan later joined the Nazi Party and eventually became a Gauleiter.
