Lot 81045
Wartime WWII/Holocaust-era incoming Red Cross mail: stampless Danish Red Cross contact form with 25 word message in English dated 11-12-1940 from German-occupied COPENHAGEN to TEL AVIV, tied by local Danish Red Cross cachet + air mail etiquette - this unusual; front-stamped by IRC GENEVA circular cachet + 23 DEC 1940 transit (dater at bottom; relatively quick transit time - perhaps by airmail); passed Palestine censor T5 in TEL AVIV. The composed tone of the message reflects the general atmosphere of the German occupation regarding the Jews, as here the implementation of anti-Semitic policies was resisted by the Danes. Unusual postal link.
