FEROZEPORE, is a city in Ferozepur District in Punjab, India. The name Ferozepur obviously means the town of Feroze. Probably the founder was Feroz Shah Tughlak (A.D.1351-88), as the place must always have occupied an important position in the line of communication between Delhi and Lahore. However, another tradition ascribes its foundation to one of the Chiefs of Bhatti clan namely Firoz Khan, of the middle of the sixteen century. Amazingly, the name of Ferozepur finds mention in the autobiography of Hitler (other than `Mein Camph') written by his Propaganda Minister Mr.Gobbles. During the war between Allies and Axis, the Allies used cartridges which were made in Ferozepur. In those days such ammunition was made in the Fort of Ferozepur. When Axis were loosing the battle, Hitler noted that on the said Cartridges “Made in Ferozepur” was inscribed and at that time he enquired as to where this city was because he wanted to destroy it.
