Nuremberg Laws and Meanings

Nuremberg Laws Explained

The Nuremberg Laws were passed to strip German-Jews of their citizenship. In the laws a Jew was defined as a person with 3 or 4 Jewish grandparents. Even if a person didn't practice Judaism or was a Christian, they were still subject to persecution. " The Law for Hereditary Health of the German People" said that a person had to have a certificate saying that they were healthy and had no hereditary illnesses to be married. The Nuremberg laws also prevented Jews from marrying or having any intimate relationship with anyone who wasn't Jewish or had "German or related blood". And finally Jews were not allowed to fly the National or Reich flag, because they weren't citizens of the Reich, but just subjects of Hitler and the Nazi Party.
