German Federation offers on-line seminars from 13 May

Published on Author Bill Hedley

The Bund Deutscher Philatelisten (BDPh) is launching a series of on-line seminars using Zoom technology to offset the restrictions on philatelic life imposed by the Corona crisis.

The first seminar will be held from 16.00-17.30 on Wednesday 13 May when Lars Böttger will talk on the theme of ‘Der 1. Weltkrieg und seine Folgen für die Post in Luxemburg’. Subsequent seminars will be held at the same time on Wednesdays and Saturdays. At present the programme runs until 4 July, but it is hoped that additional topics can be added. Most of the seminars will be given in German, but for non-German speakers at least one of them will be in English. The full programme is available to view on the BDPh website from 11 May.

The seminars are available free of charge, but to join a seminar you need to give notice in advance on each occasion through Eventbrite. The links for joining the seminars will also be on the BDPh website at

The seminars will also be available to view afterwards at the same link.
