5 Kronen - Theresienstadt Concentration Camp
Bohemia and Moravia
|Period||Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia (1939-1945)|
|Value||5 Kronen (5)|
Lettering: Star of David along with the denomination. Signature by Jacob Edelstein.
Lettering: Picture of Moses and his Ten Commandment.
The first draft of these notes was rejected by SS-Gruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich (Germany's viceregent in Prague and responsible for the Concentration Camps in the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia), as it showed Moses with too western ("Aryan") facial features. Accordingly more semitic features were added to the portrait (curly hair, hooked nose).
Another request of Heydrich was that Moses' hand had to cover the Sixth Commandment
(i.e. "Thou shalt not murder" - לא ארצח - "lo tir-tzach")
