Gandhi Postmark Cancel issued by Croatia on 02-Oct-2009

On 2nd October 2009 Croatia issued special postmark cancel to honour Mahatma Gandhi on International Non-Violence Day observed by United Nations.

Following are the 2 postcard with Postmark Cancel from Croatia Post Office. I verified with Croatia Postal Service and also I have a proof of that this is genuine postmark cancel (not a rubber stamp).





But there is also FAKE special cancellation from Winnenden Germany issued on same date 2-10-2009.!!!

It was made without permission of German Postal service, Indian Emblem was used without permission of Government of India and it was issued for non-violence of school shooting.!! No one in Winnenden knows about this special cancellation even though it was to mark school massacre and promote non-violence.!!

Read following blog post to know more about it.
