German SIG #Germany [Required] proving [of non-Jewish] ancestry in Nazi Europe? #germany


Diana da Costa
 

I have heard it stated that in some countries overrun by the Nazis,
local populations were required to prove their lack of Jewish ancestry by
producing their own family trees. Is this just a myth or is it true? If
true, which countries were affected? Regarding Germany, I don't think this
was the case but perhaps it might have been in some areas?

All ideas welcome on this issue!
