German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Blend of zerstören (to destroy) and kreuzen (to interbreed)

Verb[edit]

zerkreuzen

  1. (transitive, obsolete, proscribed, offensive, nonstandard) To contaminate a people; to ruin through interbreeding.

Usage notes[edit]

Note that the German language is regulated by the Duden. German langaue references such as Leo assert that is is not a word. Using Nazi-era terminology in a German context today, can be very problematic, offensive, or illegal.
