Shortly after the contents of the Young Plan are made public, right-wing forces attack the terms of the plan and establish the “Reich Committee for the German Referendum against the Young Plan”. Participants include the Pan-German League led by Heinrich Claß, the DNVP under Alfred Hugenberg, the NSDAP under Adolf Hitler and the “Stahlhelm” (“Steel Helmet, League of Front Soldiers”) led by Franz Seldte. The declared goal of the association is to prevent the adoption of the Young Plan via a referendum.
