Arno Anthoni, originally a lawyer, was the chief of the Finnish State Police in the years 1941-1944. Openly antisemite, and pro-German, Anthoni had close relations with the Sicherheitspolizei which led to the deportation of eight Jews to the German authorities on November 6, 1942 on the ship Hohenhörn. After the war, in 1945, Anthoni was arrested. He was the only member of the State Police to be put on trial. After his process in 1948 Anthoni was released and continued to work as a lawyer.
