Summary

The astonishing biography of Josef Ganz, a Jewish designer from Frankfurt, who in May 1931 created a revolutionary small car: the Maikafer (German for May Beetle). Seven years later Hitler introduced the Volkswagen. He not only 'took' the concept of Ganz's family car, he even used the same nickname. The unique story of the German originator of compact car design whom the Nazis tried to erase from the official record. Revelatory and a fun read, this is both an important piece of suppressed history and a real-life adventure story. All the stunning facts the Nazis didn't want the world to know.
