Germany (2015) 50th Anniversary of the Germany-Israel Diplomatic Relations

DE_2015_DE-IL-diplomatics

Britta sent me cover with stamp and special postmark commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Diplomatic relations between Germany and Israel. At first, Israel refused to establish relations with Germany due to the Hitler regime’s genocide during the Holocaust. However, relations gradually thawed as Germany offered to pay reparations in 1952, and diplomatic relations were officially established in 1965.

Thank you very much for the cover!
