Volksdeutsche Bewegung (German; literally "Ethnic German Movement") was a Nazi movement in Luxembourg that flourished under the German-occupied Luxembourg during World War II.

History of the Volksdeutsche Bewegung.
Formed by Damian Kratzenberg, a university professor with a German background, the movement gained power after the German invasion of Luxembourg and was declared the only legal political party in Luxembourg by the Nazis. Using the slogan Heim ins Reich (Home to the Reich), their declared aim was the full incorporation of Luxembourg into Nazi Germany. The policy was supported by Nazi Germany who used the Bewegung as means towards this end. The aim was accomplished in August 1942, although the VDB continued to operate and peaked at 84,000 members. Many of these joined when it became clear that membership was necessary to retain employment. A number of leading members also held dual membership in the German NSDAP after incorporation. The movement disappeared after the war, and Kratzenberg was executed in 1946.

F.R. Maker Mark could be for Frank & Reif of Stuttgart.
