I have been collecting various collections since 2003, to combat the continual clinical depression that I go through. My main collection is stamps, having started my own, and inheriting two other collections, but I also collect a few other things. One of them is Notgeld.
This is an article that I wrote for an educational journal back in 2004. They wanted something about children in the Soviet Union, in particular, about the youth organisations. I recently found it while cleaning out, so I scanned it and I am now reproducing it here, because I think it is one of the best pieces of work I have ever done.
I have also done a similar article about children in the Third Reich.
