The eagle and black colours of this stamp are suggestive
of the German influence on the Auxilio de Invierno.
Auxilio de Invierno or Winter Relief was a charitable women's organization in Franco's nationalist controlled zone in Spain. The German Wintherhilfe provided the model for the organization which was established in 1936 by Mercedes Sanz Bachiller, the widow of Falangist Onesimo Redondo.
