Jewish Ghetto Theresienstadt

Residents of Theresienstadt were allowed to receive parcels every two months, provided the sender first obtained a parcel admission stamp and affixed it to the wrapper before posting.

Pictured Above and Below: An April 16, 1944, example of the parcel admission stamp properly used on piece; also, a January 13, 1945, notice to Prague resident Jaroslav Brumlik that he can personally pick up a Concessionary stamp to mail a parcel to Ella Brenner at Theresienstadt; the stamp must be picked up personally within 8 days at the office of the Jewish Elders Council.

The Michel catalogue states that the listing for the Theresienstadt parcel admission stamp on cover means a canceled stamp on a piece of parcel wrapper, “genuinely canceled, undamaged items are rare.” This example is unusual, being larger than most and including a bilingual boxed red postage due marking.
