1939 Hitler’s Birthday Bug

The 50th birthday of Adolf Hitler on 20 April 1939 was celebrated as a national holiday throughout  Germany and other parts of the world. Gifts and telegrams of congratulations were received from all over the globe, although the Western Allies ignored the event diplomatically. The birthday celebration saw, amongst other events, the largest military parade in the history of the Third Reich, with army, air force, navy and SS units, numbering almost 50,000 men. Hitler also had a special gift from Ferdinand Porsche,  the first production Volkswagen which started out as a sketch by the  Führer.
