70th Anniversary End of WWII marked by Luxembourg Post

May 11th, 2015

According to info received by FindYourStampsValue.com Luxembourg Post has released a block of stamp on occasion of the 70th anniversary End of WWII. The issue was unveiled and put into circulation on the 5th of May.

The Second World War, and in particular the German occupation, left a deep-seated mark on Luxembourg society. It was an era of great turmoil which, far from marking a parenthesis in history, was not limited to war narratives or atrocities committed by man against man. Today, as the witnesses depart this world, it is more important than ever to convey these memories to young people in our communities who, all too often, fall prey to 'material values'.

Therefore, POST Luxembourg, together with the Centre for Documentation and Research on Forced Enrolment, the Ministry of National Education, Childhood and Youth and the Ministry of Culture, took the initiative with this project, which is designed to pay tribute to the victims who perished in this unprecedented conflict.
