From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The German Völkisch Freedom Party (German: Deutschvölkische Freiheitspartei, or DVFP) was a right-wing and antisemitic political party of Weimar Germany founded in 1922 when Wilhelm Henning, Reinhold Wulle and Albrecht von Graefe broke from the German National People's Party (DNVP).[1] Leading right-wing figures such as Ernst Graf zu Reventlow, Artur Dinter and Theodor Fritsch joined the party on its foundation.[2]

Völkisch refers to the Völkisch movement, a populist movement focused on folklore and the German Volk. A political leader of the party was General Erich Ludendorff.

The party was founded on December 16, 1922. Many members of the Deutschvölkischer Schutz und Trutzbund joined the DVFP after the former was banned. After the Nazi Party was banned in 1924, the DVFP merged with many Nazis to form the National Socialist Freedom Movement.
