Germany will not engage in reparations discussions with Poland over its World War II invasions. Instead, Poland has said it will ask the United Nations to intervene.
Poland is asking Germany to account for at least $1.3 trillion in losses from the Nazi occupation between 1939 and 1945. Germany says that Poland relinquished reparations, which is true, but Poland says that they didn’t mean it. Instead, they say that Moscow pressured them to do that and they’d like to take it back.
Reparations are an incredibly hard thing to calculate and impose on generations not responsible for past atrocities. If the world pulls this thread, virtually no ethnicity would be unscathed. The United Nations has not responded to Poland’s request. Do you think it should?
