A "Sweet" Donation on Labour Day
“After the Red Army liberated Vienna in April, they confiscated our entire stock."
The confiscated Manner wafers were distributed among the Viennese people by the Russian occupying forces to mark Labour Day on May 1. This donation was an attempt by a political power to generate positive feelings among the population.
Many decades later, Manner wafers remain a popular "sweet" donation in the name of various political parties as well as for many other occasions.
