Stamps From the Ashes Exhibit


All Ages

Postage stamps – those very ordinary, every-day items – can be an extraordinary tool for tracing the themes and priorities of virtually every nation. Part utility, part art, and part history lesson, stamps are often the “pictures worth a thousand words.” As they traveled from town to town and from hand to hand, these small documents honoring the victims of the Nazi era have played a role in helping the world remember the lessons of the Holocaust.
