Siedlung is the German word for neighbourhood or settlement.

In Nazi Germany before WWII a lot of Siedlungen were built in order to offer a house to every working class NSDAP-member. This Siedlungpolitik was a powerful propaganda tool to submit the working class to the State as well as to provide living space for Nazi's. The building and distribution of tens of thousands of those houses were carefully controlled by the Party. The often regional style in which the houses were built had to provide a Heimat (homeland)-feeling to the inhabitants and the uniform character of these settlements were to bring a feeling of unity amongst the Germans.
