Lot of three unused "Judenpost" stamps from Litzmannstad, each picturing Chaim Rumkowskia and a generalized labor scene, in 5, 10, and 20 pfennig denominations. Fine condition. In Lodz the local post office stopped delivering mail to the Jews in February 1940. The Judenpost ("Jewish Mail") was delivered to the Kehila building where it was sorted out by streets and houses, the addressees personally picking up their mail. In the ghetto, the delivery and collection of mail was accomplished along the line of an agreement reached between Rumkowski and the representative of the German post service. Lodz was the only ghetto which had its own stamps, albeit for a very short period. Many Germans bought large quantities of these stamps in the hope that they would have great value after the war.
