Abstract: We prove that for a normal projective variety $ X$ in characteristic 0, and a base-point free ample line bundle $ L$ on it, the restriction map of divisor class groups $ \operatorname{Cl} (X)\to \operatorname{Cl}(Y)$ is an isomorphism for a general member $ Y\in \vert L\vert$ provided that $ \dim{X}\geq 4$. This is a generalization of the Grothendieck-Lefschetz theorem, for divisor class groups of singular varieties.
