An email correspondant asked me for the following information. >>>snip

On august 17, 1938 a law concerning the change in family names was passed
in Nazi Germany in which any Jewish person who didn't bear a first name
other than those classified as "jewish" under the ministry of the
interior's guidlines was forced to adopt an additional "jewish" name.
There was one for females and a differant one for males. What were those
imposed names?
Name Israel for the male and Sara for female has been added as a
second name to all Jewish people.
