The Verein für Deutsche Kulturbeziehungen im Ausland (German: “Association for German cultural relations abroad”), abbreviated VDA, is a German cultural organization. During the Nazi era it was engaged in spying across the whole world, using German minorities living in other countries. Its other goals included preservation of German culture among “racial Germans”.
It was renamed Volksbund für das Deutschtum im Ausland in 1933. VDA welcomed the coming of the Nazi regime, as it shared its ideology with the Nazis, including elements such as racism. It was used to promote Nazi political and racist ideas and was especially active in schools.
