A collection of 14 covers from a man - Bohomil Mueller - his parents, and his wife Nelli. He was of Aryan descent, she of Jewish. This philatelic story starts with both interned in the Prague Hagibor Work Camp / Ghetto for 'Versippten' (inter-related) and 'Mischlinge' (mixed-race). The first cover is from Nelli in Prag XI, Schweringasse (also called Schwerinova) 1201 (the address for Hagibor), to her mother-in-law Lida. The next cover is interesting in that it is addressed from and to Prague. He has been separated from her, and is being shipped out to a forced labor camp the next day. He tells her "I'm fine. Everything is in order. Tomorrow I will find out my new address and will let you know." The next letter is in Czech, to his father, and while I can't read Czech I assume the contents are similar, since he has now arrived in his first location, The Org Todt concentration camp "Klein Stein", which is for the punishment of Jewish "Mischlinge".

The family has already had their names changed to include the obligatory "Israel" and "Sarah". Folded, with file holes at left.

One of the very popular King George VI propaganda forgeries which place the Jewish Star of David on the top of the crown, and a hammer and sickle in place of the pence symbol next to the value at the bottom. These were then overprinted with a variety of slogans. This Singapore overprint is scarce, with a Michel-listed issue of only 400 stamps. MNG as issued. These were created by inmates in the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp as a part of Operation Wasserwelle under SS Major Bernhard Kreuger (See the psyops.org or psywarrior.com websites), or read the book "Krueger's Men" by Leonard Malkin. Only 400 issued. '17 CV EUR140.

Franked French-Spanish feldpost cover from JL de Lagarde from FPN 47474: Organisation Todt Oberbauleitung St. Nazaire. OkW 'y' Lyon censor tape tied with OkW censor reverse. Blue invisinble ink censor, and handstamped '94'; a nice, 'busy' cover. Since the names are different but both are French in origin and the unit is based in the port town of St Nazaire, France at this time, I would guess that the 'volunteer' is French, and sent this cover to a French friend who happens to be in Madrid. Though this is pure conjecture, of course.
