Stamp With Hebrew Poetry

Stamp With Hebrew Poetry Yellow BadgeJNF issued in 1987 a holocaust stamp with a yellow badge on concentration camp prisoner uniform, and with two Hebrew poems: one by Chayim Guri (1923 - ) and one by Avraham Shlonsky (1900 – 1973). IMHO the idea of displaying poems on stamps is brilliant, and I’m sorry this is the only instance of poems on stamps that I know… The stamps are courtesy of Hayim Shtayer and part of his collection.
