The People’s Car

Adolf Hitler is seen here at the Auto Exhibition in Berlin on February 17, 1939. He took an interest in cars and made sure that the Volkswagen “Beetle” was dangled like a carrot in front of the people, and that they were encouraged to save up for “the People’s Car.” Money was soon diverted to the war effort, however, along with the car factories’ capacities.
