# Bank of Greece

## 1941-1944This period was the worst ever for Greece and its difficulties are reflected on the banknotes of that era. During WW2 the Greek economy collapsed and this we can see it on the 1944 banknotes that had face values of billions but without any real value. These banknotes were printed in low quality paper and without any serious security feature. In spite of the low collection value of this issue, these banknotes show how the occupation of Greece by Germany destroyed our country. |
