23.03.2016 - Special Philatelic Exhibition in Brackenheim’s Theodor Heuss Museum (Germany)

(mm) The Theodor Heuss Museum in Brackenheim (Germany) has a very interesting philatelic exhibition on offer that can be visited up until 24 April of this year. The central theme is ‘The postal war inside Germany’. On show are postal documents from the occupation period in 1945 up to the German reunification of 1990. In these 45 years the so-called Cold War took place, a clash of national politics and also a conflict between East and West that had a serious impact, even on in the everyday life of philately. A second theme is 'Heuss – gezackt geklebt' (free translation: ‘Heuss: perforated and glued’). This theme is built around the famous definitive stamp series bearing the portrait of the Federal President Theodor Heuss. The collection includes covers and postcards that have been franked with the Heuss definitives. It shows an incredible variety of postage rates and ways to frank mail. The opening times of the Theodor Heuss Museum in Brackenheim are as follows: on Thursday from 14-17 pm, on Saturday, Sunday and holidays from 11-17. On Sunday 28 March and 24 April, there will be guided tours that start at 15 p.m. The exhibitors, Hans-Günter Frech (Nidderau-Ostheim) and Dr. Hans-Günther Döring (Bietigheim-Bissingen) let their collections act as a philatelic bridge over the post-war period and Theodor Heuss, to which both are closely connected. Both exhibitors are members of the board of the philatelic study group ‘Posthorn/Heuss’ (www.arge-posthorn-heuss.de).
