After the disbandment of the police under the occupation of Denmark the Germans had no efficient crime control. This led to the deportation of Danish people whom they characterised as “anti-social”. In this project it is examined, who they were and how their chance of receiving indemnity after the war was. This is examined on the basis of “Erstatningsrådets” (the committee of indemnity) personal cases in which you could apply for indemnity if you had been neglected under the occupation and the proceedings of “Erstatningsrådet” from 1945 to December 1947. By analysing a number of journal files we find it possible to conclude that the “anti-social” were men of all whom lived a life as marginalised. Most of them were criminals but there were also examples of unpunished individuals. It was difficult for the “anti-social” to receive indemnity on behalf of their internment in the Neuengamme Concentration Camp. Their past as criminals or the work some did in Germany or Norway meant that “Erstatningsrådet” was not inclined to give them indemnity. This condition was pardoned when it came to their attention that there were individuals among the “anti-social” that they because of individual reasons chose to give indemnity. This doesn’t change the general picture that the majority of the “anti-social” didn’t receive indemnity in the post-war years.
