CONCENTRATION CAMP MONEY AUTHOR STEVE FELLERS SPEAKS

[Steve Fellers, who authored with his daughter Ray a book
about concentration camp money, spoke on the topic recently.
Here are excerpts from an article about the event in the
Shreveport Times. -Editor]

A professor passionate about numismatics shared some of the
stories tattered pieces of paper tell about the Holocaust.

Steve Fellers, a physics professor at Coe College in Cedar
Rapids, spoke at the Shreveport-Bossier City Holocaust
Memorial Commemoration on Sunday about the money circulated
through ghettos and concentration camps before and during
World War II.

Sunday's commemoration in Shreveport marked the 25th year
community members have put on the interfaith event. Rose Van
Thyn, who survived the concentration camp at Auschwitz,
spoke briefly about the legacy of the Holocaust, in which 6
million Jews and 5 million other people died.

Fellers visited Shreveport's Holocaust commemoration Sunday
because of his friendship with the late Charlton E. Meyer Jr.
and Meyer's wife, Gloria Meyer, of Shreveport. Charlton Meyer
assembled an extensive collection of concentration camp
currency that he donated to the Holocaust Museum Houston
in 2002.

"Even at Auschwitz, there was money," Fellers said. "We know
of money from over 50 camps."
