The Socialist Youth League of Germany (German: Sozialistischer Jugend-Verband Deutschlands, abbreviated SJV OR SJVD) was a youth organization in Germany. SJV was the youth wing of the Socialist Workers Party of Germany (SAPD).[1] SJV was founded in 1931. The organization was banned after the National Socialist take-over 1933.[2]

SJV published Der Jungprolet ('The Young Proletarian') 1931-1932. Der Jungprolet was edited by Willy Kressman and Mannfred Margoniner.[3]

In January 1936 SJV merged into the Free German Youth (FDJ) along with the Young Communist League of Germany and the Socialist Workers Youth.[4]
