Object | Accession Number: 1994.79.1

Scrip with a receipt value of 50 cents issued in 1940 in the Jewish ghetto in Lodz, Poland, which was renamed Litzmannstadt by the Germans following their invasion and occupation of Poland in September 1939. When the Germans transferred Jews to the ghetto, they confiscated all currency in exchange for scrip that could be spent only inside the ghetto. The scrip was designed by the Judenrat [Jewish Council] of the Lodz ghetto, and includes traditional Jewish symbols.
