- Reproduction of the first page of an addendum to the Reich Citizenship Law of September 15, 1935. This is the first of thirteen addenda to the original legislation that was issued from November 1935 to July 1943 in order to implement the policy aims of the Reich Citizenship Law.
The Reich Citizenship Law [Reichsbuergergesetz] and the Law for the Protection of German Blood and Honor [Gesetz zum Schutze des deutschen Blutes und der deutschen Ehre] were two legislative acts promulgated at a special session of the Reichstag in Nuremberg during the annual Nazi Party rally in 1935. Together they came to be known as the Nuremberg (Race) Laws and served as the basis for the exclusion of Jews from German society and for all subsequent anti-Jewish legislation enacted during the Third Reich.
