Revocation of my mother’s German citizenship - help please … #germany
Can someone please help me obtain a copy of the record of my mother’s having had her German citizenship revoked by the National Socialists. I need it to attach to my application for German citizenship.
I understand that JewishGen holds these records and a search on the main site indicates that one record is held in my mother’s name. What isn’t clear is how I can obtain a copy of this record.
Please advise me. Thank you.

I understand that JewishGen holds these records and a search on the main site indicates that one record is held in my mother’s name.JewishGen does "hold" the documents. But if you go back to the page where you found the name, and click on the name of the database, you'll find information about who holds the documents and how to ordrer copies.

One of my great grandfathers was mentioned in this database: Jewish Names in Selected U.S. State Department Files (RG59), 1910-1929 (jewishgen)
The description page contains instructions about obtaining the documents.
I hope you can find something similar on the description page of the database on which you found your mother's name.
Birth certificates, marriage certificates and other documents such as passports demonstrate the previous citizenship and your relationship to them for the application.

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citizenship was revoked in 1935, and that was not questioned.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!
