Today is World Refugee Day. A distinction between refugee and migrant is not always easy. The UNHCR has issued its new figures: ca. 70million people, most of them women with children, are today fleeing life-threatening situations. The stamp issued by the UN earlier this year shows a small family looking for a new place to call home. I'm sure that not many refugees/migrants are blond/red-headed and well-dressed or even have a tree under which to rest.

Hi Gettinold, very interesting additions! Those Spanish Civil War labels were issued by several cities/regions to raise money for refugees; most of them show women with small children in dire need. This one is also from the Catalonia region. (It actually belongs to my 'hands' album, but fits better here.)

(Hi Rigel, great addition - also to the barbed wire topic. K.)

Thank you. I wasn't sure what to make of the coupons with serial numbers. Found these among a stamp collection. Do you think they are receipts for donations? I'm pretty sure they aren't stamps in any postal category.

Around 20,000 Jews, mostly from Germany and Austria, escaped Nazi persecution at the end of the 1930s and fled to Shanghai. In the face of difficult conditions and increasing harassment from the Japanese occupation authorities, they sought to both secure their material livelihood and organize their social and cultural life. (from a summery on the book "Jewish Refugees in Shanghai", published in 2018) The label called attention to their plight.

A recent exhibit on Jewish refugees in Shanghai has now run its course:

Many Danish people fled over the waters to Sweden when Nazis invaded their country. Stamp of 1995, 50 years after the end of the war.

(Hi Ikey! Thanks for that extra info! K.)

Another charity label, this one for refugees from the Spanish Civil War. It was issued by the United American Spanish Aid Committee. There was also an American Rescue Ship Mission for taking refugees to Mexico.

Another cinderella, issued in 1936/39 in Catalonia by the anarchist organisation CNT/FAI (Confederació Nacional de Treballadors / Federació Anarquista Ibèrica meaning Worker's National Confederation / Iberian Anarchist Federation) encouraging the aid to refugees fleding from the fascist occupied zones of the peninsula.

The inverted charity overprint 'For helping refugees' on the background of a view of the old city of Tripoli (1925). Charity stamp of 1926, a time of great political shifts in the region of Grand Liban, controlled by France. This overprint has appeared earlier here and was also used for Syria.

(Hi Cursus, That's a great addition! K.)

Jordan issued two large panes of stamps in 1976 calling attention to the tragedy and the plight of the Refugees. Jordanian refugee camps are still among the largest in the world.
