A German Blood Certificate (Deutschblütigkeitserklärung) was a document provided by Hitler to Mischlinge (those with partial Jewish heritage), declaring them deutschblütig (of German blood). This practice was begun sometime after the Nuremberg Laws of 1935, and allowed exemption from most of Germany's racial laws. The certificate was conditional, and had a clause stating that it would be reconsidered after the cessation of hostilities.

This form of clemency was given to those whom Hitler judged to look and act like persons of “German blood.” Such a declaration freed a Mischling from most racial laws and allowed him to call himself deutschblütig in identification papers."
