Landbund (Germany)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Land union in Meissen (1922)

The Landbund was founded after the First World War as an interest organization for small and medium-sized farmers. He usually worked closely with the DNVP .

Some regional organizations also ran their own lists for imperial and state elections, such as the Badische Landbund , the Bavarian Landbund , the Hessische Bauernbund , the Thuringian Landbund and the Württembergische Bauern- und Weingärtnerbund .

In 1921 the Landbund was merged with the Bund der Landwirte (BdL) to form the Reichslandbund .
