Through his studies and related interests, he made Paul Jaray’s acquaintance.
Paul Jaray considered Stefan Fischer as a promising talent. Merchant Otto Reimann

The two men were able to convince the bank ‘IG Selig’ of their plans and they provide

their work towards the turn of the year, so that from spring 1936 longer test
drives – including to Berlin – were possible. One of the first trips led Stefan
