This lot includes the token German money shown in the corresponding image. The three bills appear in denominations of 20 Marks, 1 Mark and 50 Pfenning. This paper money was issued by the "Judenrat" (Jewish Council) set up by German occupation authorities for the population of the Lodz ghetto ("Litzmannstadt" was the German name for this Polish city). This currency bears the signature of Chaim Rumkowski, the leader of the "Judenrat," still considered one of the most controversial figures in the history of the Holocaust. "Rumkowski was a firm believer in the autonomy of the ghetto. He started many programs that replaced outside bureaucracy with his own. Rumkowski replaced the German currency with ghetto money that bore his signature - soon referred to as 'Rumkies." (Jewish Virtual Library). It should be noted that the the words "Quittung uber" (receipt for) appear above the denomination. This can be understood as follows: "It represented nothing more than a receipt for the Reichsmark or other currencies that had been exchanged by the Jews. Should the ghetto be dissolved, which was not expected, no one possessing ghetto money would have any right of appeal to the German Reich." (Benz, Wolfgang. "The Holocaust", pages 53 - 54).

The reverse side of each of these bills bears the warning that whoever falsifies or imitates or brings counterfeit money in circulation will be severely punished.
