The German Gymnastics Association e. V. (DTB) is the umbrella organization of gymnastics associations and clubs.
In 1933, the DT tried to introduce itself as a further pillar in the NSDAP alongside the SA, but this failed because the dominance of an association that was then hostile to competitive sports would have hindered the NSDAP’s claim to dominate the best men through sport. In 1935, the DT dissolved itself as part of the synchronization during the National Socialist era.
