    The top line starts with Kreigsgefangenen lagergeld, which means roughly POW camp money.

    “Lagergeld”, PoW camp money that circulated in the camps from 1939 until being withdrawn in 1944

    In 1943, an American General Order (No. 522) directed payment of funds to German Officers and enlisted men being held by the Americans, whether the prisoners worked or not. As a reciprocity measure, Germany declared tat all American PoW’s were to receive 7.50 Marks per month. The Americans were paid in “Lagergeld”, PoW camp money that circulated in the camps from 1939 until being withdrawn in 1944. Though intended to allow the purchase of items from very poorly stocked canteens, the money was mainly used for gambling purposes among the prisoners. It was only natural that some samples fell into the hands of Canadians from time to time.

    Please see the KZ banknote examples shown below, from Theresienstadt (Terezín). One must also remember that the format of banknotes varied from camp to camp. The Terezín banknotes shown are amongst the most detailed pieces that were produced during the war. Compare, for example, the quality of paper and the fine detail present to the poor standard notes used at other locations, i.e. the Lodz ghetto notes etc.

    I think I remember that some of the engravers from the camps were used for the Nazi plot to counterfeit the U.S Dollar and the English Pound notes to undermine the economy,a lot of the money was found in a lake in Austria after the war.I think the notes were so perfect that if they had gotten into the economy it might have changed the course of the war.
