Germany: Nie wieder Krieg!

On 15th August arrived six postcards: two from Germany, one from Spain, one from Malaysia, one from Slovakia and one from New Zealand.

One of the cards from Germany shows the poster "Nie wieder Krieg!" by Käthe Kollwitz. She created it for the 10th anniversary of the World War I in 1924. With the poster she vents the grief about the death of her son in World War I.
I got this card a few weeks ago in an envelope.


With matching stamp:
Centenary of  World War I (issued 07-08-2014)
with a special postmark showing three war graves with steel helmets from France, Great Britain and the German Empire


Thank You very much Claas for sending me the card in cover!
