    I remember seeing this in my school history book, parents gave them the bank notes because of inflation

    I have a couple of these notes. Both are very poor quality. One is for 100,000 Marks. The other, printed only two months later, is for ten billion.

    Copied the caption directly from Shorpy. Makes for an awkward title but I couldn't think of a better way to word it.

    Middle part is in quotes because that's the original description from Bain News Service.

    Ukrainian civilians in Vinnytsia gather on the city’s streets as the Soviet 38th Army, 1st Ukrainian Front, liberate the city from Axis occupation. The city had been under German occupation from 21 July 1941 until 20 March 1944. As the Germans retreated, they started large-scale fires, which can be seen in the building façades. While occupied by the Axis in 1943, the Germans discovered 91 mass graves in three locations throughout Vinnytsia containing the bodies 9,432 people, all executed by the Soviet secret police during Stalin’s Great Purge in 1937-1938. The Germans themselves would commit mass atrocities in Vinnytsia while occupying the city and surrounding region. Einsatzgruppe C (an SS paramilitary death squad) would execute approximately 28,000 individuals from the area, including virtually the entire Jewish population. One infamous image, found in a photograph album of a German soldier, shows an SS soldier of Einsatzgruppe D with a pistol about to execute a Jewish man kneeling in front of a mass grave. Handwritten on the back of the photograph is the caption: “The last Jew of Vinnytsia.” Vinnytsia, Vinnytsia Oblast, Ukraine, Soviet Union. March 1944. Image taken by Arkady Shaikhet.
