Poland flexes muscles against Germany by demanding $1 trillion reparations for World War II crimes

Poland flexes muscles against Germany by demanding $1 trillion reparations for World War II crimes

As the German led and controlled European Courts threaten to fine several Eastern European governments for refusing to accept Muslim jihadists into their borders, one of these countries is fighting back with a $1 trillion demand for reparations against Berlin.

On Sept. 5, Poland’s Foreign Minister said in a radio interview that serious talks must begin to take place over the atrocities and war crimes committed by Germany on their peoples during the second World War.

Poland‚Äôs foreign minister Witold Waszczykowski told local radio station RMF that ‚Äúserious talks‚ÄĚ were needed with Germany tofind a way to deal with the fact that German-Polish relations are overshadowed by the German aggression of 1939 and unresolved post-war issues.”

He said Poland’s material losses were about $1 trillion, or higher.

Polish defense minister Antoni Macierewicz also¬†accused European critics of trying to ‚Äúerase‚ÄĚ the fate of the Poles at German hands during the war ‚Äúfrom the historical memory of Europe‚ÄĚ. –¬†Zerohedge

Poland was nearly ground zero for the Nazi’s roundup of Jews during the war as an estimated three million were taken from the occupied country and sent off to concentration camps. ¬†In addition, a total of six million Poles were estimated to have been killed following Germany’s unlawful invasion of them in 1939, which also eventually led to the Soviet Union taking over the country following the end of the war.

Germany was forced to pay extreme reparations to France and Britain following their atrocious actions in the first World War that included the use of chemical warfare, concentration camps, and the killing of civilians without cause. ¬†But because of the Great Depression and the rise of Adolph Hitler in the 1930’s, very little of those debts were ever paid back to the Allied powers.

The chances of Germany ever acknowledging what they did to Poland and other neutral countries during the second World War will probably never occur, but these demands by Poland function just as well as a bargaining chip over the EU’s attempts to force Poland and other Eastern European countries to accept so-called ‘refugees’ from extremist Muslim countries.
