Published in close cooperation with Auktionshaus Felzmann, philatelist Claus Geissler’s book “Das System des Terrors 1933 – 1945” (The System of Terror 1933 – 1945), which features many photos of material from the award-winning exhibition collection, gives extensive insight into a special area that had previously been largely neglected by researchers. The book was presented amid great interest at the PRAGA World Stamp Exhibition by AIJP President Wolfgang Maassen. Corroborated by countless covers, this postal history book describes in clear detail how the Nazi labour camp postal system was shaped under the National Socialists’ terror regime.
From camp post to censorship stamps, this exhaustive work by collector Claus Geissler gives a unique overview of the postal system used by concentration camps under National Socialism. His letter collection illustrates the cynical bureaucracy of the pen-pushers that evolved during the persecution of the Jews and other minority groups.
The book is now available from our shop, or by e-mailing or calling Auktionshaus Felzmann.
