Such procedures, how32 DEFINITION BY DECREE ever, were limited to two types of cases: (1) applications for service in such party formations as the SS, which, in the case of officers, required proof of non-Jewish descent from 1750, and (2) attempts to show that a Jewish grandparent was actually the offspring of Christian parents. The latter procedure was possible because a grandparent was only presumed to be Jewish if he (or she) belonged to the Jewish religion.
