The German Citizenship Project (GCP) handles claims for the restoration of German citizenship for Jewish victims of the Nazi regime.

Between 1933 and 1945, a series of racial, political and religious laws stripped German Jews of their citizenship. Today, German law provides for the restoration of the rights and privileges of citizenship to Jews who were deprived of their citizenship under the Nazi regime. Restoration of German citizenship is also available to the descendants of former German citizens, including children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren and beyond.

The German Citizenship Project can navigate the complex process of re-naturalization for eligible candidates:

+ we thoroughly evaluate each case;

+ we make a determination, based on your family’s unique history, of your eligibility under the German law;

+ we will conduct the necessary research and documents collection in the US, and, more importantly, we can obtain crucial documents located in Germany;

+ we handle the application process, including the notarization of photocopies and certification of translations where necessary, and will file the petition with the German government on behalf of our client. We will respond to any follow up questions and handle any requests the German government may have prior to approving the petition;
