    First one celebrates the National Socialist party day in the General Government - formerly Poland. Looks like a first day issue type of stamping for collectors. Second one is similar with a support the services theme but I am having trouble reading it. NH

    It's an admonishment to the civilian Home-Front ..."Nicht Du bist der Mass-stab, sondern die Front!"--- "You don't set the standards, the needs of the Front do!"...

    Here is the original poster the second post card is based upon. You have to use some poetic license to interpret the phrase but in English it means something like you are not acting alone and setting a standard - this is the front! It is a kind of shared sacrifice message. NH

    Sorry, but no; Glenn's translation is quite accurate. It could even be translated as "You don't matter; the front does!"

    Thanks for the clarification on the translation. Ma▀stab is a tough one to translate into English. The third photo shows the poster upon which the post card is based. The post cards appear to be stamped for first day of issue and are genuine. The first cancellation is from Krakow and the second is Wien or Vienna. NH
