Beginning in 1933, the German government revoked German citizenship for tens of thousands of German Jews as well as persons seen as political opponents such as Communists. This affected not only German residents, but also individuals who had left Germany and were residents of other countries. It took similar action against residents in parts of Czechoslovakia that had been annexed.
