Object | Accession Number: 2005.517.43

Jewish Community scrip for one Deggendorf dollar issued to Adolph Blau and his family in the Deggendorf displaced persons camp in Germany from 1945-1948. Adolph, his wife, two children, and mother-in-law had been deported in 1942 by the Germans from Vienna, Austria, to Theresienstadt ghetto-labor camp. They lived in the Terezin until the International Red Cross took over administration of the camp from the Germans on May 2, 1945. The family then was transferred to the Deggendorf displaced persons camp in the Bamberg district of Germany in the American zone. They lived there until their immigration to the United States in 1948.
