The Nazis used the terms ‘asocial’ and ‘workshy’ to categorise together a group of people who did not conform to their social norms.

This group included beggars, alcoholics, drug addicts, prostitutes, and pacifists (people who believe war is unjustified).

People who were categorised as ‘asocials’ were persecuted and some were taken to concentration camps where they were forced to wear black triangles.

Roma and Sinti people were often classed as ‘asocial’.
