Volkswagen logo, VW logo expose the Hakenkreuz - swastika
as "S" letters symbolizing
"Socialism" of the National Socialist German Workers' Party - Nazism

The Volkswagen logo exposes the swastika as intertwined "S" shapes symbolizing "Socialism" for the monstrous National Socialist German Workers' Party, and provides more proof in support of discoveries by the noted historian and symbologist Dr. Rex Curry.

Dr. Curry's work has been announced and verified on Wikipedia. A recent article at reports on the many references to Dr. Curry's research and discoveries on Wikipedia. Even Jimbo Wales, Wikipedia founder, has publicly noted Dr. Curry's influence on Wikipedia. Wikipedia writers use Dr. Curry's work without attribution in apparent attempts to bolster their own credibility.

Many people forget that the word "Nazi" is a syncopation for "National Socialist German Workers Party." The group's actual full name indicates Nazism's clear affinities with collectivism.

Germany in the 1930's often used symbols for letters and words. Common symbols under the National Socialist German Workers' Party often used the "S" shape, including the side-by-side use in the "SS" Division and the overlapping use in the Hakenkreuz - swastika.  The German word for "swastika" is "Hakenkreuz" ("hooked cross" or "armed cross").

Hitler was aware of the practice, and perhaps the source of the practice, in that he evolved "Adolf Hitler" into "S Hitler" in his own signature.

It was a manner of declaring his socialism every time he signed his name and it was equivalent to signing "Socialist Hitler."

It is part of growing evidence that supports the discovery by Dr. Rex Curry (in the book "Swastika Secrets") that the Hakenkreuz, although an ancient symbol, was used also to represent "S" shapes for "Socialism" and its victory under the horrid National Socialists.  

Dr. Curry is also famous for proving that the USA's early Pledge of Allegiance was the origin of the straight-arm salute adopted later by the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

Another rune, the Odal rune, was used as a symbol of the "Wiking Jugend" (Viking Youth, or Viking Young'uns).  The Volkswagen symbol then emulated the popular runes its alphabetic symbolism, as discovered by Professor Curry..
The original VW logo was not "VW" but the swastika / Hakenkreuz.

The VW was known as the "swastika hubcap" car.  The early versions and drawings actually had swastika hubcaps, just as the older versions had "VW" hubcaps. Some people believe that the VW hubcaps resemble the swastika at certain speeds of rotation.

Hitler used the Volkswagen for his socialist propaganda.  The swastika was within the original cogged-wheel (gear) symbol that later had the "VW" letters placed within it.  The "VW" letters replaced the original meshed "S" letters in the later VW symbol.

Volkswagen’s iconic buttressing of V and W was the creation of an engineer named Franz Reimspiess. He was also the same man who perfected the engine for the Beetle in the 1930s.

Nikolai Borg, 86, who now lives in Austria, says he was involved in the development of the VW logo. The young commercial artist impressed others when he won the competition for the creation of a logo for the "Deutsche Jugendherbergswerk" (German youth mountain hostel work?).  Borg says that he was invited to draw the car logo in a request from high-up:  Dr. Ing. Fritz Todt, with the "organization Todt" the general inspector for roads and a militarily organized building troop used in the entire theater of war.  Borg made nine drafts with different connections of the letters V and W before the final version was created.

In photographs, Nikolai Borg shows that the VW logo was created simply by replacing the two S letters of the swastika with the two letters V and W.

Literally, the word "volkswagen" means "people's car" (cf. "folk's wagon").  When the early VW versions were introduced, Hitler abruptly changed the name of the car to KdF Wagen. KdF stood for "Kraft durch Freude" which meant "Strength through Joy."  The name-change upset Porsche, as he was not a member of Hitler's Nazi-Sozi party, and he didn't support Hitler's use of socialist propaganda to advertise the car.

Of the original KdF name, Hitler said: "It bears the name of the organization that has done the most to fill the broad masses with pleasure and therefore strength. It will be called the 'KdF-Wagen.' "

There were many other socialist clichés.  The "Strength through Joy" program was part of a scheme to provide holidays to workers at inexpensive rates.  It was related to the "Beauty of Labor" (Schönheit der Arbeit) office. The phrase "Arbeit macht frei" ("Work brings Freedom") glared at concentration camps.

Born out of sinister intentions, the VW Beetle was propaganda for German socialists in helping create unity in pre-war Germany. Hitler imposed socialism in the car market and pushed the project.  

The Beetle was the brainchild of Dr. Ferdinand Porsche, a freelance automotive designer and constructor. In 1930, Porsche set up an automotive design company, the Porsche Büro. In 1933, Adolf Hitler met with Porsche to discuss the socialist leader's idea of a volkswagen.

Porsche drew inspiration from the success of Henry Ford's creation of the mass-produced Model T.  It is unfortunate that the Volkswagen went down the road of socialism, instead of the road of capitalism and the free market blazed by Henry Ford.

The leader of German socialism gave the project his whole-hearted support, and became directly involved in plans for the car's production. By 1938, several early production cars had been constructed and production facilities had been built.

In 1939, the National Socialist German Workers' Party joined with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics as allies to invade Poland in a pact of military socialism to divide up Europe. The Second World War ended passenger-car production plans, and the Stuttgart factory was converted to military use.

Only later, after the Volkswagen was towed from socialism and driven by capitalism, would it meet its modern success.

Near the end of World War II many men in the "Volksgemeinschaft" (national community), both young and old, were called upon to serve in the "People's Army " (Volksturm).

Audi still uses the German tag line "Vorsprung durch Technik." The tag line is used either in original or in its English translation "Advantage through Technology."  It is an odd reminder of socialist clichés from the 1930's.

Those clichés led to the socialist Wholecaust (of which the Holocaust was a part): 62 million slaughtered under the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; 35 million under the Peoples' Republic of China; 21 million under the National Socialist German Workers' Party.  It was the worst slaughter in human history.

Sometime after 1945, the car company was re-named Volkswagen by the British and the factory was placed under the control of a man named Hirst.  The British also renamed the town at the factory "Wolfsburg", which was the name of a local castle.

In a bizarre way, some Nazism may still exist at Volkswagen within Germany. In 1949 Hirst left the company, now re-formed as a trust controlled by the West German government. Volkswagen is said to still be owned by the government of Lower Saxony, though it is not "run" by the state government.  Ferdinand Porsche's grandson, Ferdinand Piech, was chairman and CEO of the Volkswagen Group from 1993 to 2002. With half of all voting shares, he also remains the largest individual shareholder of Porsche AG.  Stock can be purchased in Volkswagen companies. Founded in 1955, Volkswagen of America, Inc. is headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Volkswagen AG, one of the world's largest automakers. Volkswagen AG (the Volkswagen Group) consists of the Volkswagen plants in Wolfsburg, Brunswick, Hanover, Kassel, Emden and Salzgitter. It is the parent company of all other companies in the Volkswagen Group, which are either wholly owned subsidiaries or companies in which Volkswagen AG has majority ownership. The Company operates 44 production plants in 11 European countries, as well as seven countries in the Americas, Asia and Africa, etc.

Before WW II, when the car was still socialism's “Strength through Joy” car the logo was surrounded by the gear shaped emblem of the German Labor Front, a socialist group that built it.  The National Socialist German Workers' Party had begun as the "German Workers' Party" before adding "National Socialist" to its name.

The flag for Units of the German Labor Front had as the center field the symbol of the Deutschen Arbeitsfront (DAF, German Labor Front): a black cog wheel containing a black swastika. The finial took the form of the DAF emblem, a voided white cogwheel containing a swastika, all in polished white metal (from the Osprey Men-At-Arms Series, #278 "Flags of the Third Reich 3: Party &  Police Units", p. 37).

An early design for the car featured the letter V above a W and surrounded by a cog. After the war, Britain had the cog changed to a circle and that design was filed for copyright in 1948. The Volkswagen or "people's car" project was part of the Nazi Kraft durch Freude propaganda scheme run by the Deutsche Arbeitsfront (DAF). The logo of the DAF was a swastika surrounded by a cog – from which the VW logo was derived.

To control trade unions and the economic workforce, the National Socialist German Workers' Party (the National Socialistiche Deutsche Arbeiter Partei - NSDAP) created the German Labor Front (Deutsches Arbeitsfront - DAF) in 1933.  The purpose of the German Labor Front was to control the German labor unions through a centrally controlled organization led by National Socialists.  The German Labor Front adopted a paramilitary structure similar to that of the National Socialist German Workers Party.  While membership was called "voluntary," essentially every German worker was required to be a member.  This was particularly true of those workers associated with prime industries such as cars, transportation, utilities, textile trades, armament manufacturing, legal services, agriculture and the like (in other words, just about everything of course).  The organization was divided into two parts including the National Socialist Factory Organization (Nationalsozialistische Betriebsorganization-NSBO) and the National Socialist Trade and Industry Organization (Nationalsozialistische Handels und Gewerbeorganization-NSHAGO).

Members of the German Labor Front were required to own and wear uniforms that denoted their status within the structure of the organization.  Following the outbreak of war, members were often required to serve as factory guards or to volunteer for membership in associations like the National Air Protection League (Reichsluftschutzbund) and other Air Protection (Luftschutz) groups.  In this capacity, it was their job to help protect industrial facilities as well as to coordinate with outside organizations that helped to ensure the safe operation of factory facilities.  Many members of the German Labor Front also served as official members of the Factory Police (Werksschutzpolizei-WSP). By 1942, the German Labor Front also organized independent and locally trained members who volunteered to operate anti-aircraft flak batteries to protect individual factories from Allied bombs.
