Holocaust Postal History

Presented by Justin Gordon


Holocaust philately is the study of postal means of communication during the Nazi era in Europe.  While it doesn’t answer major questions that still haunt us, it does offer insight into the personal, unique journeys of victims of the Nazi onslaught. In this unique presentation, Justin Gordon talks about Hitler’s rise to power, his creation of anti-Semitic laws, and how those laws were reflected in the postal system.


Justin Gordon, OD, is a Holocaust postal historian who has collected, exhibited and lectured on the subject for 40 years. Gordon was introduced to the Holocaust by a cantor who had survived Auschwitz.  Later, at a philatelic exhibit he saw documents, postcards and letters from Auschwitz and the Warsaw ghetto. Thus began his interest in Holocaust postal history.
