Theresienstadt (Terezin)


Concentration Camp-Ghetto Theresienstadt (Terezin)

Residents of Theresienstadt were allowed to receive parcels every two months, provided the sender first obtained a parcel admission stamp and affixed it to the wrapper before posting. next >>

Below: An April 16, 1944, example of the parcel admission stamp properly used on piece; also, a January 13, 1945, notice to Prague resident Jaroslav Brumik that he can personally pick up a Concessionary stamp to mail a parcel to Ella Brenner at Theresienstadt; the stamp must be picked up personally within eight days at the office of the Jewish Elders Council.

The Michel catalogue states that the listing for the Theresienstadt parcel admission stamp on cover means a canceled stamp on a piece of parcel wrapper, "genuinely" canceled, undamaged items are rare. This example is unusual being larger than most, and including a bilingual boxed red postage due marking. Expertized and Signed Gilbert.
