Description

Here are three examples of prison money (Lagergeld) from two prisoner of war camps, Braunau am Inn (one Kronenote) and Marchtrenk (two Kronen note), and a civilian internment camp, Katzenau bei Linz (20 Kronennote). Austrian authorities did not allow prisoners to hold legal currency since these funds could be used to bribe guards or to support prison escapes.
