Mexico VW dealership apologizes over Nazi photos
A VW dealership in Mexico City is apologizing over a photo showing a VW bug at a Nazi rally and pledging to take unspecified action in the case
MEXICO CITY -- A VW dealership in Mexico City apologized Tuesday for a photo hanging in its offices that showed a VW bug at a Nazi rally and the automaker pledged to take unspecified “actions” in the case.
The VW Type 1 sedan, known as the original beetle, bug or in Mexico’s case as the “bocho,” was a car developed under Adolf Hitler in the 1930s.
The Coyoacan Volkswagen dealership in southern Mexico City displayed a number of historic photos of the bug, including one of a 1938 rally with swastika flags where the car was presented.
