This is the birthplace of Kim Il-Sung, ruler of North Korea until 1994. Although Kim was probably born near Pyongyang, it is unknown whether this is the actual location. The site, dedicated in 1947, comprises several grass roof houses built in a style commonly found in northern Korea. The I-shaped buildings consist of several rooms linked by a shallow wooden veranda. Unlike the traditional homes of southern Korea, there are no open-floored (maru) spaces because the climate is too severe. Grateful to Tian in China for arranging to send this rare country card.

Erhard.The Berlin Wall was a barrier that divided Berlin from 1961 to 1989. Constructed by the German Democratic Republic (GDR, East Germany), starting on 13 August 1961, the Wall completely cut off (by land) West Berlin from surrounding East Germany and from East Berlin until government officials opened it in November 1989. Its demolition officially began on 13 June 1990 and was completed in 1992.Both stamps on German Legislative bodies has perfect, matching and beautiful cancellation.
