“Questionable Issue,” an Exhibit on Concentration Camp Currency from the Cleveland Fed

The Sparks Fly Upward Foundation is pleased to borrow and display an extraordinary exhibit from the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s Learning Center and Money Museum.

From the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s website:

Questionable Issue: Currency of the Holocaust shares the gripping and seldom-told story of money inside Nazi concentration camps and ghettos. Stories of camps where prisoners were forced to exchange their money for worthless Nazi-issued paper provides a wrenching lesson in betrayal and loss. This exhibit is courtesy of the Holocaust Museum Houston, which is dedicated to educating people about the Holocaust, remembering the 6 million Jews and other innocent victims, and honoring the survivors’ legacy. The exhibit is presented with the support of the Maltz Museum.

The eight panels will be on display throughout the opera run, adding to the richness of the story.
