Description

An imperforate reprint of a 1940s Theresienstadt Ghetto Parcel Admission Label, which had to be affixed to any packages sent to the ghetto’s inhabitants during World War Two.

Located in the town of Terezin (Theresienstadt), in what was then the Protectorate of Bohemia & Moravia – today’s Czech Republic – the ghetto housed Jews from Czechoslovakia, as well as Germany, Austria, Denmark and the Netherlands. Around 33,000 inhabitants died there, predominantly through disease or malnutrition, and the tranquil scene depicted on the label was somewhat different to the real-life hardships experienced there.

From what we have seen, the reprint labels are slightly cruder and paler in quality than the originals, and are more often than not imperforate. In contrast, the originals, as you would expect, are much more valuable, and the postally used examples we have seen have all been perforate.
