Court fee stamps from the German occupation zones

Buitenland

Only a few examples of many possible ones are shown here. After 1945, there were more occupation zones than anyone would believe today. My Fiscal Philatelic Baden Book, published in 2015, shows these almost forgotten but at the time still existing occupation zones.

French Occupation Zone in Germany

First, the French occupation area was divided into the provinces Baden (capital Freiburg), Württemberg-Hohenzollern (Tübingen), Palatinate-Rheinhessen (Neustadt), Rhineland and Hesse-Nassau (Bad Ems) and Saar (Saarbrücken). In 1946, under the supervision of the French military government, the states of Baden, Württemberg-Hohenzollern and Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland, which had been spun off in February 1946 with tacit toleration of the Allies from the French occupation zone and as Saar protectorate (Protectorate de la Sarre, Government of Militaire de la Sarre (GMSA)) was subordinated to a special regime with the aim of incorporating it into the territory of the Fourth French Republic.

In July 1946 parts of the districts of Trier, Saarburg and St. Wendel were spun out of the French occupation zone and connected to the Saarland. In some border regions to Luxembourg, Belgium and the British occupation zone z. For example, there have been efforts by the population to leave the French zone and become part of an economically better-off region. In the Palatinate 1946/1947 there were efforts for a separation of this province. Only slight interest in the population and energetic rejection of the military government ended the separatist plans. There was also a French sector in Berlin in the West Berlin districts of Reinickendorf and Wedding next to the sectors of the US, Britain and the Soviet Union. In 1948, the Palatinate in Rhineland-Palatinate was incorporated.

On May 23, 1949, the federal states of Rhineland-Palatinate, Baden and Württemberg-Hohenzollern became part of the Federal Republic of Germany. As early as 1952, the states of Baden and Württemberg-Hohenzollern merged with the state of Baden-Württemberg, formed by the American military government, to form Baden-Württemberg. The Saarland joined the Federal Republic only after 1957, after rejection of the Saar statute in a plebiscite carried out on 23 October 1955. The French occupation zone also included the Bavarian district of Lindau. This served as a connection corridor to the French, occupied zone in the west of Austria. The reintegration of the district to Bavaria took place on 1 September 1955.

It is therefore the symbol of justice. Justitia is shown with her eyes blindfolded, holding a balance in one hand and a straightening sword in the other. This is to clarify that the law without the reputation of the person (blindfold), after careful consideration of the state of affairs (Libra) spoken and finally enforced with the necessary severity (Richt sword).

Canceled district court Wuppertal 20. Frb. (February) 1951

Allied occupation zone Berlin

The four occupation zones of Berlin in the Four Powers Status

Embossed: The Justitia in the left hand the Libra, in the right a straightening sword. The balance is about enough that the litigation will make its decisions after a careful review of the situation. The bar of Libra used to be horizontal, while today it tends to be sideways. The reason: “In doubt for the defendant”. The straightening sword stands for hardness and assertiveness. In some illustrations, the Justitia also wears a blindfold, which is supposed to stand for, is ultimately spoken without respect of the person the right.
