Toy's Story - chilling example of Nazi propaganda from the glory days of the Third Reich.<br />
<br />
A toy car featuring a figure of Adolf Hitler and Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels riding in the back has emerged for sale.<br />
<br />
The Mercedes 'Wagen des Fuhrers' car was made by toy makers Tipp & Co which was owned by a Jewish family before they sold the company and fled Nazi Germany in the late 1930s.<br />
<br />
After that the manufacturers became a tool for the Nazi propaganda machine and the black Mercedes was made for children of Germany. <br />
<br />
The car, that was made sometime between 1936 and 1942, is now expected to fetch up to £1,200 at Adam Partridge Auctioneers of Maccesfield, Cheshire.
