Even though we know that no regular trading activity was possible within the camps, however, notes – or tokens - were no rarity. Different denominations were in circulation in several camps and ghettos. The deportees on arrival were required to exchange their money and securities against ' local money '. This measure was part of a comprehensive safety system. And indeed, with money that was only valid within a very limited area a possible fugitive would not get far. Nevertheless, these notes were also used as money. Sometimes as compensation for certain jobs, sometimes to buy certain goods. But it should certainly not be forgotten that the working conditions, the fees, the charged prices were not affordable for the prisoners. All had the same design and differed only in colour and size from each other. On the notes symbols can be found that refer to Judaism: the star of David and Moses with the tablets of the law
