Source: The Left “The project of the Federal Government is the legitimate claims of the descendants of Nazi persecute do justice,” criticized the domestic spokeswoman for the group DIE LINKE, Ulla Jelpke, the decrees of the Federal Interior Ministry introduced today to facilitate the naturalization of descendants of Germans, the as a result of Nazi persecution measures had lost German citizenship. Jelpke continues: “Germans who were forced into exile by the Nazis and lost their German citizenship there have been grave injustices. It should be a matter of course, to give them and their descendants an unrestricted legal claim to the repurchase of German citizenship. Instead, the Federal Government merely wants to show ‘goodwill’ in the so-called discretionary citizenship. Thus, it remains in the unsatisfactory situation that the descendants of Nazi victims have no legal entitlement, but are dependent on the goodwill of German officials. Moreover, they must continue to demonstrate ties to Germany beyond their desire to become German again. Thus, victims of Nazi crimes are degraded to petitioners in the land of the perpetrators. This means nothing less than to demand the descendants of Nazi persecutees a debt to Germany. It would be the other way around: Germany is in the guilt of these people. All those whose ancestors have lost their German citizenship due to the Nazi tyranny, they must get back on application. You deserve a legal claim, no mercy on the way. THE LEFT. will submit its own bill on this. “
