Re: Revocation of my mother’s German citizenship - help please … #germany

I began the restoration process two years ago and got citizenship earlier this year.  On the application form, I indicated that citizenship was revoked in 1935, and that was not questioned. In most cases, citizenship was not individually revoked -- all Jews were stripped of citizenship at the same time -- and thus there were no supporting documents.  I was able to get copies of other documents by requesting them from the records department of individual German cities.  Most of these records are not online.

Looking at the list of documents required (Anspruch Merkblatt) I don't see revocation of citizenship on there, but they might ask for it in specific situations, for example, if the individual got citizenship elsewhere before 1945.

Different consulates tend to handle the process differently. I had a very tough time with my local consulate, San Francisco, difficult to get information and appointments. It was definitely a hassle. But I'm glad I did it!
