These stamps show a portrait of Simon Wiesenthal in a frame in the form of the Star of David, applied using a special printing technology. The technique used in the production of this joint issue is a world premiere! The text elements on the stamp are in both German and Hebrew.
Simon Wiesenthal was an Austrian-Jewish architectural engineer and Holocaust survivor who became famous after World War II for his work as a Nazi hunter who pursued Nazi war criminals. His life motto was Justice not Vengeance.
The stamp depicts the declaration of the establishment of the state of Israel by David Ben-Gurion, Israeli leader and the first Prime Minister. He was a key figure in Israel independence and the establishment of a Jewish nationality and state in Israel after the Holocaust by which the Nazi's killed 6,000,000 Jews in Europe.
