Luboml

Fischer 1-5 | Michel I-V (see I. Ausgaben 1914-1919) | Year of issue 1918

The local authorities had this series of stamps produced during the German occupation. They were never issued, because there was no money available.
The stamps show city views of Luboml, a city now in Ukraine. The text on the stamps is in four languages: Yiddish, German, Polish and Ukranian. This issue was very speculative and may be found with many so-called errors. By the 1930's Libivne (as it was called in Yiddish) had a vibrant community of at least 4000 Jews but Jewish life there came to an abrupt ending in October 1942 when the Germans murdered almost all of the town's Jews. Only 51 Libivners survived the Holocaust.
