Article 116 paragraph 2 of the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany (Grundgesetz) goes something like this:

Former German citizens who between January 30, 1933 and May 8, 1945 were deprived of their citizenship on political, racial, or religious grounds, and their descendants, shall on application have their citizenship restored.

My blog, Fatherland: There’s No Place Like Home, or, How and Why a Nice Jewish Girl Asked Germany to Take Her Back tells the story.
