Applying for compensation for political victims of the GDR


The Administrative Rehabilitation Act (VwRehaG) opens up a way for victims of administrative arbitrariness and administrative injustice in the former GDR and the Vocational Rehabilitation Act (BerRehaG) for those politically persecuted in professional life to free themselves from the stigma of personal discrimination and to claim social compensation.

Depending on the individual case, different documents can be helpful to prove the political persecution measure. This can only be clarified in concrete terms in the procedure (e.g. SV card for professional disadvantages, land register extracts for financial losses, medical documents for damage to health).

There are no fees.

The responsibility lies with the State Administration Office.

Those affected who themselves supported the GDR (or Nazi regime), e.g. in leading positions or as informal employees, are usually excluded from rehabilitation.
Further information can be obtained from the State Administration Office.
