Q: So what exactly is a Wolfsburg Crest Award? How did it get its name?
A: The Wolfsburg Crest Award is an award named after Wolfsburg, Germany. Wolfsburg was named from its historical roots in World War II, when a town originally created in 1938 was introduced to house the workers of the newly opened Volkswagen factories. These factories were built to assemble the Volkswagen Beetle, or "the people's car." The town was renamed "Wolfsburg" on May 25th, 1945 after an ancient castle in the town was demolished.
