Dates of Existence

Founded in 1935


In order to participate in the elections of 1935-05, the Sudetendeutsche Heimatfront transformed itself into a regular political party, the Sudetendeutsche Partei. The SdP called upon all ethnic Germans in Czechoslovakia to join its ranks. Many did so eagerly, hoping through this show of unity to promote full cultural and national development of the German minority within the existing state framework. The SdP attracted such widespread support that it soon left all the other German-based political parties in Czechoslovakia far behind.


  • Founded in Germany.
