This special issue stamp with a value of 70 cents was released as part of the series of annual commemorations of the Second World War. The design refers in a subtle way to all the relationships of family and friends that were destroyed and torn apart by the war.
During his farewell speech as a university lecturer in Delft, Professor of Industrial Design Robert ‘Ootje’ Oxenaar (Head of Design at PTT for many years) showed only one slide with a picture of this stamp,  applauding its perfect design.
