During the Holocaust, internal currency was issued in many of the concentration camps, death camps and ghettos that have become hallmarks of that terrible era. Though little was previously known about this money, it provides incredibly valuable insight not only into the internal economies of these institutions, but also the economic dimensions of genocide that the Nazis manipulated to their advantage. This paper provides background on the inception and use of such money, and argues that ather than being innocuous and neutral elements of daily life in the camps and ghettos, these notes and coins were in fact instruments of genocide.
