Occupation credit treasury note, 50 Reichspfennig, issued by Nazi Germany

Object | Accession Number: 2010.443.9

German occupation credit treasury note, valued at 50 Reichspfennig, issued in Berlin, Germany by the Reichskreditkassen (Reich Credit Treasury Bank) for use in German occupied countries. In an effort to strengthen the economies of German occupied countries, credit treasury notes could only be used in the specific occupied country alongside the local currency. Soldiers in the German army also received their pay in credit treasury notes. The currency was recovered by Yahad-In Unum as they researched the atrocities committed by Nazi Germany against the Jewish population in Eastern Europe. The organization has located hundreds of mass execution and grave sites to document this Holocaust by bullets and to allow for the respectful remembrance of the fallen.
