Re: Restoration of German Citizenship #germany

A close friend is a Holocaust survivor who left Germany for the US after Kristalnacht. She was able to recover her German citizenship. Not only that, even her grandchildren gained German citizenship.  This enabled her granddaughter to live and work in Ireland for a year.

I understand that Lithuania has a similar program. However I do not know how I would prove that my grandfather was born there since he changed his name from Kemakh to Cohen in the US and there is no documentation of the change. Although he is Kemakh on the ship's manifest, I don't see how I can prove that he and the person on the manifest are the same person.
