Notes
1. It has been written that the 2 Mark notes are quite rare, as they were the most forged in the ghetto at the time. Everyone was required at one point to hand their 2 Mark notes in so they could be redistributed. 2. Very rough translation of the bills is as follows: Receipt of Ten Marks The elders of the Jews in Lodz Who brings this falsified receipt or makes fake receipts will be severely punished. 4. The banknotes are stored in BOX 32 of the Vaad Ha'Ir collection.

History Biographical
Sarah Mindes (nee Bernstein) was born in Sheta, Lithuania in 1904. She married David Mindes, a fellow graduate of the Jewish Teachers College in Kaunas, Lithuania and both of them taught school in a small town called Malat for several years where their daughter, Evelyn, was born. The family emigrated to Canada in 1930 and settled in Montreal, while David went to Winnipeg to fulfil a 2-year contract he had made to teach in one of its Yiddish schools before returning to Montreal. In the meantime, Sarah worked in a dress factory as a sewing-machine operator. In 1941, David and Sarah opened a grocery store on Park Ave. in Montreal until they retired. Sarah Mindes began keeping a diary at the age of 15 and did so until she died at age 71, in 1975. Her early entries were written in Russian and Hebrew but soon thereafter she changed to Yiddish. She was an avid reader, an avid notetaker, an active attender at lectures and Montreal's reading circles, and an active participant in giving lectures to a variety of groups. In 1974, one year before she died, she was honoured at a formal dinner, and with a plaque for her contribution to Yiddish culture by the Montreal Chapter of the Yikuf, by the Mendele and Sholem Aleichem Layen Krisens and by the Montreal Culture and Reading Circles. (Source: Evelyn Shapiro)
