    # 31 Christine Bell, If your grandmother was jewish you can find out at the local city records of the German city where she lived(in my city they're available on paper,microfiche and online)because births and marriages were recorded(Christian, Jewish or otherwise). As you may know jewish descent goes via the female line so if your grandmothers daughter is your mother you could be jewish(if she was). Amira Hass is jewish as far as I know, she's the only Israeli journalist living in the territories and gets a lot of flak for that in the talkbacks over here at Haaretz. The names may be close in their spelling(Hase/Haas meaning hare in German/Dutch) but that doesn't say much. You should do a genealogical survey. Hass(ss=ringel-s) by the way means 'hate/unfriendlyness/ugly' in German. But the name probably comes from another root. I'm not sure if finding out about this is worthwhile to you. If you have a desire to be jewish you should see your local orthodox Rabbi for a conversion.
