Jewish Money

Jewish Money Magen David Photo is courtesy of David Diamant and if you have more information about this banknote please drop him a note at

In Ghetto Lodz, the second largest after Ghetto Warsaw, Jews were not allowed to use German currency. Jewish Money was issued on May 15, 1940 in several denominations. On one side of the 10 Mark coin there was a Star of David with the word "Ghetto" over it.


This side was also set against a field of woven stars of David, which metaphorically has the appearance of a barbed-wire fence.
