in July 1943, in the Rostov Region, lieutenant Kontratyev during an attack raised his hands barbed wire fences in front of the German trenches. His platoon was able to take the trenches by storm, but the lieutenant died in battle

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day, 75 years after the liberation of Auschwitz. The stamp was issued for the International Resistance Month in 1962. At the sides one sees the typical arched concrete pillars that carried the barbed wire, and it was electric wire. Majdanek lies just a bit south of Warsaw in the city of Lublin.

The Battle of Moscow in the winter of 1941-2 was one of the most gruesome of the second WW. Losses on both sides were in the 100s of thousands, not even counting the civilians who died of cold and hunger. The Germans were stopped short of taking over the city. Maldives, 75 years after the battle.

Italy honored the bravery of soldiers in the First World War with a set of stamps in 1934. This one shows an infantryman cutting through an entanglement of barbed wire. These soldiers were completely exposed - the enemy was only a few hundred feet away.

Janusz Korczak, doctor, educator and author, was head of a large orphanage in Warsaw. When the Nazis came to take the children to a concentration camp, he did not leave them, seen in the background in the stamp. He was murdered in Treblinka in 1942.
