Lodz (Litzmannstadt) ghetto scrip, 10 mark note

Object | Accession Number: 1987.23.1

10 (zehn) mark note receipt created in the Lodz ghetto, renamed Litzmannstadt by Nazi Germany after they occupied the city in September 1939. When the Germans transferred Jews to the ghetto, they confiscated all currency in exchange for Quittungen [receipts] that could be spent only inside the ghetto. The scrip was designed by the Judenrat [Jewish Council] and includes traditional Jewish symbols. Although the notes are dated May 15, 1940, the inital printing occurred in March. The ghetto was liquidated by the Germans in August 1944.
