The ADAC, officially the Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club (lit. ’General German Automobile Club’), is Europe’s largest automobile association. The ADAC is the largest verein (club) in Germany, with around 21 million members. Its headquarters is located in Munich. Its original and most well-known service is roadside assistance.

After 1933, during Gleichschaltung, the Nazi Party amalgamated all motoring organisations in Germany into the DDAC (Der Deutsche Automobil-Club e.V.), an umbrella association that was allowed to exist in the shadow of the NSKK (National Socialist Motor Corps). A DDAC appeal described the 1934 international Automobile Exhibition as a “show for the people” rather than an “exhibition for the more affluent bourgeois segment” of society. “Motoring for the people” (Volkskraftfahrt), it proclaimed, was more “in the spirit of the Führer”.
