The Slovak National Uprising

Date of Issue : 29 August 2014

The Slovak National Uprising (SNP) of 1944 represents one of the greatest armed anti-fascist events taking place during the years of the World War II.

The postage stamp is based on the impressive work of the academic sculptor Jozef Jankovič from 1969, “Obete varujú” (Victims warn us), being a part of the SNP memorial in Banská Bystrica. The memorial silhouette is included in the special postmark. A motive of the first day cover is the town castle in Banská Bystrica and includes also the coat of arms of the town.
