This has no Scott number, since it is a poster stamp or "cinderella".

The inscription translates as:
[Top] Stamp Exposition Aschersleben 1933
[Center] Tannenberg National Monument
[Bottom] To the fallen in memory, to the living in recognition, to the future kindreds for emulation.

The handwritten bit says "Ruhestätte v[on] Hindenburg" (resting-place of Hindenburg).

According to Wikipedia:

Quote:
Contrary to Hindenburg's will, he was interred with his wife in a magnificent ceremony at the Tannenberg Memorial. In 1944, as the Russians approached, Generalleutnant Oskar von Hindenburg moved his parents' remains to western Germany. After World War II the Poles razed the Tannenberg Memorial to the ground.

The remains of Hindenburg and his wife currently lie buried in St. Elizabeth's Church, Marburg.

The Tannenberg Monument label is one of 10 different designs. Here is the full sheet.

Notation on album page says, "can be found in five different colors." Don't know/can't remember the source of this information

The battle of Tannenberg was fought between the Russian and German armies in August 1914. Led by Hindenburg, the Germans won, thus stopping the Russian penetration in the, then, East Prussia (now Poland).
