Republic of Czechoslovakia, 20 korun note, acquired by a war crimes trials court reporter

Object | Accession Number: 2004.323.8

Czechoslovakian 20 korun bank note acquired by Dixie Foster when she worked as a civilian court reporter during the US War Crimes Tribunal at the former Dachau concentration camp in Germany, also known as the Dachau war crimes trials. The trials were conducted in the American postwar occupation zone by the US Army from November 1945 to August 1948. During World War II, Czechoslovakia ceased to exist as the country was partitioned and absorbed by Nazi Germany and its allies. In April 1945, Germany was losing the war and the Third Republic of Czechoslovakia was created. This currency was issued on November 1, 1945, by the new republic.
