Elderly Jewish woman trying to get a passport: No, I don’t have a copy of my marriage certificate. I got married in a concentration camp.
Overzealous German bureaucrat: Well, you need to have a copy of your marriage license.
Elderly Jewish woman: Are you kidding me? They won’t even let me show my kids where I got married because I don’t have documentation. What’s the address I should write to? You have that there?
