Walk in My Shoes: Collected Memories of the Holocaust


The Jewish Ghetto


World War II and the Holocaust


World Holocaust Memorials
 

 

In 2007, Danny Spungen, a collector and philatelist, on behalf on the foundation, acquired arguably one of the best known collections of Holocaust materials related to stamps, covers, postcards, letters, bank note forgeries, and manuscripts from concentration camps and Jewish ghettos.

"Holocaust by Post" is a representation of Danny's extensive collection, presented in a manner that hopefully will well represent the history of the Jewish "experience" during the Holocaust, as well as serve as a warning that we must do all we can to ensure that events such as the Holocaust never happen again.

Image right: A traveling, anti-Semitic propaganda exhibition titled "Der ewige Jude (The Eternal Jew)" opened in Munich on November 8, 1937. Jews were portrayed as moral degenerates in exhibits, lectures, books, and posters--alternatively as money-grubbing capitalists or as Communists conspirators, either way bent on world domination.
