Sudetenland 1938 -1945

A philatelic story

The postal history of Sudetenland 1938-1945 has not been well researched. It is my aim to show and explain the various aspects of the story including stamps, postal cancels, and postal forms that were in use during the period. 
I will show progression of changes instituted by the Sudetengerman and later the German postal authorities after the take-over of Sudetenland. I will then illustrate the various postal services provided by the German postal authorities. Finally, I will show the changes that occurred when Czechoslovakia liberated the Sudetenland.
New pages will be added as the occasion arises.

I welcome any corrections and additions so if you have any, feel free to send me an email!
