Volkswagen gives 400k to Wagner

The Volkswagen Foundation has donated 400,000 Euros to develop the world’s largest collection of Wagner memorabilia outside Bayreuth.

It’s at Eisenach, Bach’s birthplace, and it endured prolonged neglect under Communism.

The collection was established by an Austrian industrialist, Nicolaus J. Oesterlein (1841-1898).

Volkswagen wants to put it back on the superhighway.
