German Farmers' Party

The German Farmers' Party (German: Deutsche Bauernpartei, or DBP) or German Peasants' Party was a German agrarian political party during the Weimar Republic, existing from 1928-33. It has been characterised as part of a wider attempt by the middle classes to assert their economic interests in the mid to late 1920s by founding their own, fairly narrowly based, parties, including the Christian-National Peasants' and Farmers' Party and in urban areas the Reich Party for Civil Rights and Deflation and Reich Party of the German Middle Class.[1] The party was banned and made illegal by the ruling NSDAP in 1933.[2]
