Theresienstadt was a ghetto-labor-transit camp in Terezin in northern Czech Republic. It was also used as a model camp for propaganda purposes where the Nazis portrayed an atmosphere of normalcy with items such as money. The bills shown are for 1 Krone; 20 Kronen; and 5 Kronen; and depict Moses with the tablets of the Ten Commandments.
