At first Jews were required to register and to wear yellow stars as identification.  

The Nuremberg Race Laws of 1935: 
  • Deprived Jews of rights of citizenship
  • Prohibited marriage or sexual relations with Aryans
  • Prohibited employment of Aryans as household help

The first two laws comprising the Nuremberg Race Laws were: "The Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honor" (regarding Jewish marriage) and "The Reich Citizenship Law" (designating Jews as subjects). Those laws were followed by "The Law for the Protection of the Genetic Health of the German People," which required all persons wanting to marry to submit to a medical examination, after which a "Certificate of Fitness to Marry" would be issued if they were found to be disease free. The certificate was required in order to get a marriage license.
