Volkspartei der Schweiz

Volkspartei der Schweiz (VPS, "People's Party of Switzerland") was a Swiss neo-Nazi political party founded in 1951 by Gaston-Armand Amaudruz and Erwin Vollenweider.[1]

The party was one of the driving forces behind the foundation of the New European Order and boasted Hans Oehler amongst its leading members.[2] It published its own paper Courrier du Continent, although this later became the personal journal of Amaudruz.[3] Although an important group on the international neo-Nazi scene VPS did not gain any real influence at home and eventually fizzled out.[4]

The group has no direct connection to the similarly named Swiss People's Party.
