Re: Official records from nazi era may still contain illegal entries #general


Yes, but, if i understood correctly it is the law in germany, after
the war, that such "additions" be removed. Whether that is done with
a stroke of the pen and an explanatory note, or with a pair of
scissors, it is the policy of the postwar german government to
dissociate itself >from such artifacts of nazi persecution.
Obviously, a registrar issuing a birth certificate 65 years later
should be expected to comply with that law.

Our interest in researching our families should not take precedence
over the sensitivities of people alive today.
