The Names Stamp

Postage Stamp, Yellow Badge
This postage stamp with Yellow Badge was designed by Meir Eshel.
On the stamp appear names of force laborers from a factory in Poland – most of them were shot and the rest were transported to a Death Camp. The rail roads that were used for transporting Jews to Death Camps become the blue stripes of the Israeli flag and the yellow badge becomes a blue Star of David on the Israeli flag. Issued in 2003.
