Polish Catholic Groups Offer People Certificates of Aryan Descent

Double Fence Around Auschwitz

In Wilno, Poland (later Vilnius, Lithuania), a Catholic organization begins offering people "Certificates of Pure 'Aryan' Descent" so they can prove that they are a "true Aryan" going back six generations.

Catholic organizations are in a good position to do this because they have access to church records which can demonstrate baptisms in a family going back that far. The Nazis will make use of this resource to find out who is descended from converted Jews in order to send them to concentration camps.
