Template:Orphan The Gaustürm were an organizational unit of the SA in Nazi Germany.

They were the biggest unit until 1928. They were created by Franz Pfeffer von Salomon, and there were originally nineteen of them. Their boundaries purposefully were built around 'tribal groups' of Germans rather than state boundaries, party districts, electoral districts, or military recruiting districts. [1]

The term often pops up when researching the past of Nazi leaders.
