Weimar Germany Reichsbanknote, 10,000 marks

Object | Accession Number: 2007.151.3

German bank note that belonged to 17 year-old Fanni Reznicki. After the German occupation of Poland in September 1939, Fanni and her family were imprisoned in the Jaworzno ghetto. In 1942, Fanni was deported to an all women's concentration camp and then to Oberalstadt. The Germans evacuated the camp in May 1945 and while on that death march, the prisoners were liberated by the Soviet Army on May 10. Fanny returned to Poland where she was reunited with her father; they soon relocated to Germany. She learned that her mother and younger sister had been murdered in Auschwitz in 1942. Fanni was able to get to Palestine in 1945 with the assistance of Betar, a Revisionist Zionist youth organization; her father arrived there later.
