Proof of Ancestry Pass
The collection consists of a proof of ancestry pass (Ahnenpass). The proof of ancestry pass was used to prove "Aryan" ancestry, as required by German law after 1933. The pass included explanations about the National Socialist racial ideology and a genealogical chart, which summarized the holder's ancestry for previous five generations.
