Title

Holocaust Postal History

Description

In this presentation, based on the book Holocaust Postal History: Harrowing Journeys Revealed through the Letters and Cards of the Victims, author Justin Gordon takes you on a journey through the Holocaust using correspondence written by the victims. While Holocaust philately does not provide answers to the major questions that still haunt us, it does, however, offer insight into the personal, unique journeys of victims of the Nazi onslaught. In many cases, an envelope or a postcard, as highlighted in this presentation, may be the only remnant of an individual’s life.
