In Nazi Germany, Jews are ordered to obtain special identity cards from the government which all have a "J" stamped on them. Starting January 1, 1939, Jews will have to carry these identity cards on them at all times and show them to authorities whenever requested.

This applies to everyone who is categorized as Jewish according to the 1935 Nuremberg Race Laws. Thus if any of a person's grandparents were Jewish, they would have to have the "J" on their identity cards.
