HERZOGENBUSCH

A major concentration camp located within the occupied Netherlands, Konzentrationslager Herzogenbusch was established at Vught, near the Dutch city of 's-Hertogenbosch. The camp, modelled on others in Nazi Germany, operated between early 1943 and autumn 1944. Over 30,000 were held in the camp, with around 750 estimated deaths. Many more were transported east to be killed in the death camps.

Konzentrationslager Herzogenbusch

The currency at Herzogenbusch was produced in two formats. One type was similar to the general 1943 pattern camp issue, measuring 70x60mm and printed on thin coloured card. The denominations were 50 cents, 1 gulden and 2 gulden. The other notes came in 7 denominations (10cents, 25 cents, half gulden, 1 gulden, 2 gulden, 2.5 gulden and 10 gulden). A patterned border with wording, denomination marking and note concerning the use of the token are present on each denomination. All are headed "Lagergeld für das K.L.H." (camp money for the Herzogenbusch concentration camp).
