4.1.1 Prices ran out of control - eg a loaf of bread, which cost 250 marks in January 1923 had risen to 200,000 million marks in November 1923. German's currency became worthless.
4.1.2 People collected their wages in suitcases.
4.1.3 One person, who left their suitcase unattended, found that a thief had stolen the suitcase but not the money.
4.1.4 One boy, who was sent to buy two bread buns, stopped to play football and by the time he got to the shop, the price had gone up, so he could only afford to buy one.
4.1.5 However, some people benefited from this... Some people made fortunes during the crisis. One man borrowed money to buy a herd of cattle, but soon after paid back his loan by selling one cow.
