Yes, but they didn't build the "Zero", as the question asks...........

An undisclosed number of forced laborers worked at Volkswagenwerk GmbH in Wolfsburg during those years, as the German war machine fought to stave off imminent defeat at the hands of the Allied powers. Many German companies have belatedly acknowledged their complicity in the Nazi war effort.


I'll be early all next week...... not working; on vacation, so every day is the weekend

I didn't do too well today! I said intestine for #3 but didn't think to specify small. I got #s 5, 6, and 7, and that's all. Yikes!
