The Nuremberg Laws were two anti-Semitic 1935 laws in National Socialist Germany, approved at a NSDAP convention in Nuremberg. One deprived Jews of German citizenship. The other forbade marriage or sexual relations between Jews and “citizens of German or kindred blood."

There were also later supplementary decrees and restrictions. The first defined Jews as persons with at least one Jewish grandparent.

Later, two basic Jewish categories were established. A full Jew was anyone with three Jewish grandparents. Mixed Jews (Mischlinge) were eventually divided into two classes. First-degree mixed Jews had two Jewish grandparents, but did not practice Judaism and did not have a Jewish spouse. Second-degree mixed Jews had only one Jewish grandparent.
