German People’s Party


(Deutsche Volkspartei), a political party of the big bourgeoisie in Germany under the Weimar Republic.

Founded in December 1918 out of the former German National Liberal Party, the German People’s Party was led by G. Stresemann and supported by such major monopolists as H. Stinnes, H. Röchling, and A. Vögler. It advocated policies aimed at restoring Germany’s military-industrial potential and expanding foreign policy and policies directed against progressive forces. During the intensified class struggle between 1929 and 1933, the leaders of the German People’s Party supported the fascists. After the establishment of the fascist dictatorship, the party was forced to disband in June 1933.
