This presentation will explore forms of money used in World War II concentration and internment camps, and will reveal how money was used to control prison populations, in addition to its use as a tool of propaganda. Presenters Steve and Ray Feller, a father-daughter team, have done firsthand research on this topic and are the authors of the standard work on the subject, Silent Witnesses: Civilian Camp Money of World War II. Steve Feller is the B.D. Silliman Professor of Physics at Coe College, while Ray Feller is Associate Dean & Co-Director, Student Support Services, at MIT.
