General Gouvernement Warschau overprints

Glossary

Germania issues are a series of German stamps, released between 1900-1921, with the portrait of the Wagnerian opera star Anna von Stratz-Fuhring, representing the German empire.
General Gouvernement Warschau (General Government Warsaw) is the name applied to German-occupied Poland in World War I. The name is derived from the French form of the Russian "gubernia" (province).
