The Jugendbund der NSDAP was a youth organisation attached to the Nazi Party and a predecessor to the Hitler Youth. It was effectively the youth section of the Sturmabteilung (SA, or Storm Troopers) and it existed between 1922[1] and 1923 when the Nazi Party was banned following the failed Munich Putsch.[dubious ] It contained three sections:

  • Jungmannschaften: boys aged 14 to 16 years
  • Jungsturm Adolf Hitler: 16 to 18 years old
  • The organisation also had a girls wing.
