Half Jews, perhaps. If you had a way with words and a big understanding of the Nuremberg laws I suppose a German with some Jewish blood could get away with it.

Also Hitler had a tendency to just point at Jews and state weather he liked them or not, like the Jewish Doctor that treated his Mothers breast cancer in Austria.

Probably some with Jewish heritage but not religiously Jewish, probably conscripted. None in the SS though since German members had to meet a criteria including proof of full German heritage.

Even Dirlewanger?

Dirlewanger was a direct descendant of Odin.

The insect he was crossed with was from Germany.

half-jew officers and those married to jewesses were already discharged before the war, except for top tier VIPs like Milch or Model who probably bribed their way out

The author looks like a gigachad.

>>6769103
He looks like if he had been a Jew in Nazi Germany he would have been made officer of the Waffen SS
>>
>>6768909
Yes there were over 100 000 if I remember correctly. They had an specific name but I forgot
>>
>>6769556
further more, there were 250,000 non-germans in the Waffen SS.
>>
>>6769556
bullshit. around 70k half-jews were expelled in 1940. a few thousand, including full jews, went on to serve with false papers.
>>
>>6768909

He's also been criticized by some of the leading Holocaust scholars because he uses the Nuremberg laws to define Jewishness rather than Jewish law, which is... well, terrible historical practice
