Liberation of the concentration camps by cutting the barbed wire with a bayonet; powerful symbolism. 1995 The artwork was done by Howard Koslow (1924-2016), the American illustrator who designed numerous postage stamps for the USPS.

Guinea-Bissau honored Anne Frank (1929-1945) with a souvenir sheet and stamps with scenes from the war in 2015. A section of concentration camp barbed wire is pictured next to her portrait. It would have been Anne's 90th birthday yesterday.

Both Germans and Koreans know about walls of barbed wire separating their populations after a war. This cancellation was issued for the philatelic exhibition in Frankfurt highlighting friendship between the two countries. Note that the Brandenburg Tor is open and the DMZ is not, but there is a peace dove between the two.

Iran issued an appeal on a stamp in 1980: "Let us Liberate Jerusalem". The star of David made of barbed wire is being removed. The subject of barbed wire/Jerusalem has been discussed on several other pages.
