Geographical and Cultural Context

Victims of the German occupation of Denmark in 1940-1945 and their surviving dependants may qualify for compensation if they are covered by the Danish Act on Compensation for Victims of the Occupation Period. Victims of the occupation period are first and foremost Danish citizens who, during the German occupation, sustained an injury or developed a disease reducing their earning capacity. It is Labour Market Insurance that decides if a person is entitled to compensation or National Awards.
