Mourning Stamp from Germany



Date of Issue : 5 December 2013

Deutsche Post issued a mourning stamp for the condolence letters. A condolence letter is not an ordinary letter, it differs markedly from the usual correspondence. Although sincere words of sympathy can’t stifle the pain, they let connectedness arise. It’s not about the mourning of the loss, but the gratitude for the beautiful and intense time passed together shows the true appreciation. The letter of condolence is thus an obituary in miniature, an appreciation of that special that every human being dwells.


Glistening sunlight breaks through the dark black clouds, just as breathing of the sky. Likewise sincere words of sympathy penetrate the gloomy grief of the relatives.

When a dear person passes away, a condolence letter can brighten up the dark days like a streak of light. Finally, the word “condolence” means that we sympathize the pain of another. This pious word deserves a special environment. With the grief stamp from Deutsche Post, which was issued in December 2013, a person can stylishly say “I am with you”.
