Prisoners at all Nazi concentration camps in German territory were allowed to send and receive mail on a limited basis. The mail inmates sent out from a Konzentrationslager was sent on special preprinted stationary and in special envelopes and was always censored by the Postzensurstelle to make sure that the prisoner did not complain or provide outsiders with sensitive information about concentration camp industries, security or conditions in general. Examples of all such philatelic material are very rare today.
