This card was issued in 1938 to commemorate the Reichskolonialbund’s Three Colonial Days in Dresden. The purpose of the event was to celebrate and remember the German colonies lost during and after WWI, and to advocate for their return.

The slogan on the card is “Deutschland, deine Kolonien!” (Germany, your colonies!).

A commemorative cancel was available in Dresden.
