A Century of Occupations, Political Experiments and Renewed Statehood in Central Europe as Reflected in Postage Stamps (and History Teaching)

A Century of Occupations, Political Experiments and Renewed Statehood in Central Europe as Reflected in Postage Stamps (and History Teaching)

The text of this paper analyses the issue of political and territorial transformations in Central Europe as reflected in postage stamps issued from 1918 to the present day. Stamp production, as a historical source, also reflects modern history in the form of jubilee issues and the choice of the subjects presented, thereby contributing towards the shaping of our collective memory. This paper recommends their didactic use in history teaching on the basis of an account and analysis of these subjects. The process described leads to an effective alternative educational medium that strengthens interdisciplinary co-operation between school history teaching and media studies.
