Not everybody is aware that Volkswagen was founded by Adolf Hitler in 1937 as the dictator built an entire city just to house both the company’s factory and workers in Lower Saxony. The German Labour Front was labeled the founding force behind the company.
After the war, Volkswagen’s bombed factories were rebuilt via British supervision, with mass production resuming shortly after the war in 1946. 1949 brought the transfer of Volkswagen control back to the West German government and the state of Lower Saxony.
A boom period was experienced in the 1950s with Volkswagen. While international sales were generally healthy, it took a bit for sales in the United States to take off due to the company’s previous affiliation with Nazi Germany.
In 1955, Volkswagen of America was created, and in 1955, the company’s ad campaign for its Beetle model was hugely successful.
