It's known that a number of people of Jewish descent served in the German armed forces or other aspects of the Nazi apparatus, despite the policy of systematic Nazi exclusion and later extermination of Jews.
Most of these individuals seem to have been whom the Nazis characterized as "Mischlings": that is, not of entirely Jewish descent. Under the Nuremberg race laws, this would basically mean having no more than two Jewish grandparents. However, was this the case for all of them?
- Were any of these soldiers, or any governmental employees (who would be, by definition, members of the Nazi party) non-Mischlings? That is, they had three or more Jewish grandparents? Presumably they'd have attained their position through either hiding their ancestry or special dispensation.
- If so, what is the highest position that such an individual attained?
