Footnote: The National Socialist Teachers League (NSLB = Nationalsozialistische Lehrerbund, was established on April 21, 1929 and remained in existence until 1943. The founder and first "Reichswalter" of the organization was Hans Schemm. The organization saw itself as "the common effort of all persons who saw themselves as teachers or wanted to be seen as educators, independently from background or education and from the type of educational institution". Its goal was to make the Nationalsocialist worldview the foundation of all education and especially of schooling. In order to achieve this, it sought to have an effect on the political viewpoint of educators, insisting on the further development of their spirit along Nationalsocialist lines.
