From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The General Dutch Fascist League (in Dutch Algemeene Nederlandsche Fascisten Bond) was a minor Dutch fascist party founded in 1932. The party sought to create a volksfascisme, although they failed to fully define this aim and were considered closer to Mussolini than Hitler despite their rhetoric. The party failed to gain support in the 1932 elections and faded.[1] The group then entered into a 'corporative concentration' with the followers of Alfred Haighton and the National Union, although leader Jan Baars did not get on with Carel Gerretson, the leader of this new group and so quit the ANFB. As a consequence the ANFB floundered without its leader and disappeared.[2]

The Black Front, represented something of a revival of the ANFB, albeit on more Catholic lines.
