The Holocaust on World Stamps

The commemoration of World War II and the Holocaust takes many forms. One of the most visibly distinct could be the postage stamp on your daily mail. Postage stamps have long been a visually appealing way for countries to mark anniversaries and events and memorialize people. Countries often had design contests or commissioned special artwork for these stamps.

Museum Education Specialist David Nelson explored how the Holocaust has been commemorated on stamps in the international community throughout the years.

We invite you to see this unique collection of postage stamp art and think about how and why countries, even those not directly involved in World War II, chose to honor Holocaust history.
