Nazi-Era German Postage Stamps



German postage stamps issued in 1938 for the “Sixteenth German Sports Tournament, Breslau.” The 12 pfennig design is Breslau Town Hall, and the 15 pfennig is Centenary Hall. Both have been used. Nazi emblems such as the Swastika and the Eagle began to appear on German stamps after 1935.
