NEW BOOK ABOUT HOW THE NAZIS STOLE THE ORIGINAL DESIGNS FOR THE VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE FROM A JEWISH ENGINEER

by Rhonda Spivak, December 15, 2011

There  is an interesting story in the Jewish Tribune today.

The true story of the Jewish engineer whose original designs for the Volkswagen (VW) Beetle were stolen by the Nazis is going to  be published in Canada this month, and is one I have flagged to put on my book list..

Journalist Paul Schilperoord, author of The Extraordinary Life of Josef Ganz, the Jewish Engineer behind Hitler’s Volkswagen, accidentally came across a mention of Ganz while he was  researching an article he planned to write about the volkswagon'ss history.

“I was simply intrigued that a Jewish engineer… was behind the Volkswagen Beetle, the most successful project the Nazis ever did,” Schilperoord told the Jewish Tribune by phone from his home in Florence, Italy.
