During World War II, the territory of Poland was occupied by Nazi Germany. The occupation began with the German invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, and the Soviet Union's invasion of Poland on September 17, 1939. The government of Poland was subsequently replaced by a German civil administration, known as the General Government. The General Government was divided into four districts, with the capital located in Krakow.

In terms of postal history, the German occupation of Poland resulted in significant changes to the postal system. The first stamps issued by the Germans for use in the area were Hindenburg Medallion stamps of the Reich overprinted Deutsche Post OSTEN (German Posts in the East), with the denominations in Polish currency. These stamps were used throughout the occupation and were primarily used for mail between German authorities and within the General Government.

In addition to the overprinted stamps, a number of special postmarks were also introduced, including "Deutsche Post Osten" and "Generalgouvernement" postmarks. These postmarks were used to cancel stamps and indicate that the mail had been sent from or was intended for the German-occupied territories.

Overall, the postal history of the German occupation of Poland is a fascinating and unique field of study that provides insight into the German administration of occupied territories during World War II.

Perfect for cover collectors, philatelists, and anyone interested in the history of German occupation in Poland 1939-1940
