General Note: Exhibit label text: "The Wolkswagen (literally, the People's car) was developed as an important part of Hitler's economic propaganda program, uniting an industrial investment initiative with a social goal - the promise that every German worker could afford an automobile. Presented as part of Hitler's Strength Through Joy (Kraft durch Freude) leisure organization, the VW was available through an installment payment plan. However, none of the over 300,000 people who placed an order for the car ever received one, because production was re-directed for military needs. The VW was manufactured for civilians only after the Second World War."
