Fifty years ago on May 12, 1965, as the agreement establishing German-Israeli diplomatic relations was signed, no one could have imagined that Israel and Germany would be the close allies they are today. Israel and Germany share the same values of democracy, pluralism and free society, open and liberal economy, freedom of expression, religion and the press. They have common interests in a large variety of fields, mainly scientific research and culture. In today’s globalized world Israel and Germany face many common challenges, which can only be tackled together. Cooperation and shaping new commonalities and goals are in the foreground of the relations between our countries, sectors and societies.
The stamp features the Beit Bruno building located 3 Strauss St. which was built by architect Zeev Heller in 1935. The stamp tab features the logo marking 50 years of diplomatic relations between Israel and Germany. The logo was designed by Ariel Wollek of Israel and Ticha Matting of Germany – winners of a competition initiated by the Israeli and German Foreign Offices. The competition was conducted as part of the Bezalel project, under the guidance of Anat Katsir.
