The Volkssozialistische Selbsthilfe was a social-political project of the Palatinate Gauleiter Joseph Bürckel (1895-1944), initiated in the summer of 1933. People’s Socialist self-help committed every Palatinate to a monthly sum of money for government measures on the labor market, in housing construction, for the needy and others to donate. Because of the bitter resistance from Munich and Berlin, Bürckel had to stop his project in the summer of 1934.
