Israel and Sarah (1938 Nazi decree) #general


Judith Romney Wegner
 

From: malkajef@...
An email correspondant asked me for the following information.
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?
The answer is: Israel for males and Sarah for females.
