Default A glimmer of hope

The end of World War II, Germany destroyed, Mercedes Benz and factories - decimated. No hope, nowhere to turn to.....fast forward to 1947, and that's where the story starts. A great article with compliments of Mercedes Classic. There is one thing , no in fact several, I can relate to - the bitter cold in winter, an absolute scarcity of basic foods, such as sugar, milk, and it was a very tough time indeed in the late forties and early fifties.......yes, I do remember.
