The story of the early Jewish postcards

The invention of the postcard had a dramatic impact on the way people communicated by mail and transmitted messages, first in written and then in pictorial form. The Jews of Germany, Poland, and the US embraced the new invention and utilized the cards to convey images that reflected the ideologies of their respective communities, their daily and religious lives, and their hopes for a better future.
