Stamps and the Sorbian People

Just like the rest of the world, stamps have influenced even the Sorbian people of Germany. Near as I can tell after the fall of Nazism post WWII, the DDR (GDR) began supporting the culture of the Sorbs (Wends). Following the fall of the Berlin Wall, there have been more stamps made concerning the Sorbs, though as time has passed and the merger of the East and West Germany has become more and more complete stamps are reflective of Germany as a whole instead of focusing on cultural groups. This page is a tribute to those stamps. At this time it is not comprehensive of all stamps pertaining to the Sorbs/Wends as there are a great many of them and researching and acquiring them is a lengthy process. Please send us an e-mail on any that you know of that are not represented here as well as any details concerning them or those appearing on the following pages.
