Greek Jews put WWII claims to Germany

Monday 23rd March 2015

LEADERS in Greece’s largest Jewish community will reclaim money extorted during World War II, they announced at the weekend.

“We will study the law and do our best to claim,” said Thessaloniki community president David Saltiel.

When the Nazis were deporting Greece’s Jews to death camps in Poland in 1943, Hitler’s genocidal accountants made a chilling reservation — the Jews had to pay their own train fare.

The bill for 58,585 Jews’ transport to Auschwitz and other camps exceeded 2 million Reichsmarks — more than €25 million (£18m) in today’s money.

Greece’s Syriza government has made war reparations a central part of bailout negotiations with Germany.

But Berlin has dismissed such demands, saying that compensation issues were settled decades ago.
