    I like to collect bank notes.. unfortunately, most of them are worthless but I enjoy the link to the past.

    I've started my own Forum (mostly just to see if i could).www.papermoneyforum.com . I don't expect to get many visitors but I'm pretty happy the the mast design and the fact that I figured out the installation and implimentation.

    here are some samples

    Neat stuff Comiso. Never seen those bills before. Still somewhat mystified by British money and all the slang terms for it.

    Ill have to scan some of my money.

    I have about 250 Million Reichs Mark from WW2 and about another 300 Billion Reichs Mark from before WW2.

    I also have Japanese Occupation Money and French Money from when they were occupied by the Germans.

    I also have a bill from France that was printed weeks after the liberation of France and has the French Flag waving and all this hub bub about Viva La France and stuff.

    If you get around to it, please post them on my site and mention ww2.aircraft.net. the PR and linkbacks could help you snare a few more members!

    thanks

    I have an interesting issue here. These "Jewish money" were part of a Nazi scam that fooled Red Cross commitee visiting a concentration camp in occupied Czechoslovakia - Theresienstadt - in June 1943. When there were already rumors about mass extramination of Jews by Germans, Red Cross sent a commitee of Swiss inspectors to see what's the truth. Because of that, the inmates of Theresienstadt had to play a disgusting role of happy inhabitants of Jewish enclave being defended by the Germans in the heart of Europe. Only the nice looking and strong stayed, others were deported to Auschwitz before the commitee came. The whole camp was beautificated, making the whole place literally one big Potemkin village... Fake facades of coffeé houses, bars, shops, barberies and opera houses were put up, kids were taught to say "Schon wieder Sardinen und Schokolade?" (Oh, again we have sardines and chocolate?") in front of the inspectors, when in fact they were starving to death... The result of that was that the Red Cross announced that Jews are being treated wonderfully by the Germans and during horrible war on two fronts, Jews are enjoyed nice life in a spa town... Not to mention that after the commitee left, most of the inmates were immediately sent to gas chambers...For more see: Theresienstadt concentration camp - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
