More on Adolf Rosenberger and Porsche

Hi folks -- I have been working on translating a source that has added more information to my knowledge of Adolf Rosenberger and his relationship with Porsche. the source is a manuscript of a show that was on SWR2 in 2012. The Author was Eberhard Reuss and the editor was Rudolf Linssen.   The translation is mine and if there are mistakes in the translation those are mine as well.

The show begins with a visit to the Pforzheim City Museum and the viewing of a trophy from the Klaussenrennen hill climb of 1927. the discussion then shifts to the hushed up nature of the Adolf Rosenberger and its embarrassing nature with regards to Porsche.

The show also refers to a Rosenberger interview on ZDF "Bilanz" in 1966. I do not know how to get this source! It states how important the design project of the Zundapp-Werke peoples car was to the eventual design of the Volkswagen.

It is stated that the initial capitalization of the Porsche Design Firm in 1931 was 30,000 RM, with Ferdinand Porsche contributing 24,000RM, Son-in-law Anton Piech 3,000RM and Adolf Rosenberger 3,000RM.

Also, Particularly with regards to what would become the Audi Silver Arrows, Rosenberger and significant influence, not only is setting up the project but also in a design where the engine was behind the river. Rosenberger had driven the 1923 "Benz Tropfenwagen" a design precursor to the Auto Union race car.

With the rise of the Nazis to power in early 1933 Rosenberger handed over his front man job at Porsche to Baron Veyder-Malberg. He never was refunded his investment before he left for the U.S., and his 3,000RM was worth 100,000 RM by 1935.

In 1935 Roenberger retruned to Germany from Switzerland, and on September 5, 1935 he was placed in concentration Camp KZ Kislau for a racial crime, namely a relationship with an "arischen"woman. He would be released 4 days later after paying a 53+ RM fine. It wassail that Ferry Porsche and Anton Piech had supported Rosenberger in his release, but Rosenberger later maintained that it was not them, but Veyder-Malberg.
Sources here to follow up on include materials at the Generallandesarchiv Karlsruhe and the Staatsarchiv Ludwigsburg.

KZ Kislau, a camp for those from North Baden

As a Jew Rosenberger had no legal recourse in 1935 He left for Paris,knowing that his partners at Porsche let him fall like a "raw egg." So this SWR 2 source argues.

More coming!
