The Young Communist League of Germany (, abbreviated KJVD) was a political youth organization in Germany. It was formed in 1920 from the Free Socialist Youth (Freien Sozialistischen Jugend) of the Communist Party of Germany, which itself was formed in October 1918, with support from the Spartacus League (Spartakusbund).
After the majority of the Independent Social Democratic Party of Germany joined the Communist Party of Germany at the end of 1920, the Independents' Socialist Workers Youth group followed suit and merged with the Communist Party's youth organization and then in 1925, became known as the Young Communists League.
The central organ of KJVD was Die Arbeit, which was published illegally.Communist Youth International. International of Youth, No. 1, 1924. p. 17
