The Kyffhäuserbund was nazified after the Nazi takeover of power in 1933. Five years later, its name was altered to NS-Reichskriegerbund Kyffhäuser e.V., becoming the sole and exclusive organization representing the veterans' interests in the Third Reich.
The Kyffhäuserbund was swiftly and unceremoniously disbanded during World War II in March 1943 by Adolf Hitler himself. Apparently, the reason was the German defeat in the Battle of Stalingrad. Its assets in the whole Reich were transferred to the Nazi Party.
