The Jugendbund Neudeutschland (Youth Federation New Germany) is a German Catholic organisation, founded in 1919 following a recommendation by Felix von Hartmann, the Archbishop of Cologne.[1] During the Weimar Republic it was closely affiliated with the Catholic Centre Party. The organisation opposed Nazism and was banned by the Nazi regime in 1933. After World War II it was re-established as Bund Neudeutschland and enlarged, comprising a wing for secondary school students, another for university students, and a third one for those who were no longer students, but wished to continue in the movement. The student wings then merged with the parallel girls movement Heliand and formed the Katholische Studierende Jugend [de], which is affiliated with the International Young Christian Students.
