Motorwelt, the official illustrated magazine of Der deutsche Automobil-Club (DDAC of The German Automobile Club) published an extensive article about the first national meeting of the DDAC, held in the city of Freiburg in May 1937 (1. DDAC Reichstreffen). Local Nazi Ortsgruppen followed suit and organized rallies and meetings on a smaller scale.

The original stoneware Weinkrug or wine pitcher we offer on this USMBOOKS web page was awarded to a participant in a DDAC car or motorcycle race or rally on 13 and 14 August 1938 sponsored by NSDAP Gau 18 Mitte at Bernburg. Bernburg is a small town about 30 miles south of Magdeburg on the Saale River in Saxony. During the Third Reich it was the home base of several Infantry Regiments and replacement and Luftwaffe units. Nearby was the Junkers Ju88 factory. Between 1940 and 1943, the regional psychiatric facility at Bernburg was used for the National Socialist euthanasia program (NS-Tötungsanstalt Bernburg).
