Warsaw’s insane demand puts Poland and Germany on edge

Germany must pay Poland 6.2 trillion zlotys (1.32 trillion euros) in compensation for the destruction caused during World War II, the president of the country’s ruling party has said. This was conveyed specially for BTA by the Polish agency PAP.

Jarosław Kaczynski, leader of the Law and Justice party, said this at a ceremony to present a report detailing Poland’s losses as a result of the German invasion.

The report will help promote the issue on the international stage, he emphasized.

Before the presentation, which coincided with the 83rd anniversary of the outbreak of World War II, participants observed a moment of silence for its victims.

Kaczynski said that while the reparations process was “long and difficult,” the point was to “get reparations for everything that Germany, the German state, the German nation did in Poland in the years 1939-1945.”

He added that “dozens of countries around the world … have received compensation from Germany, while Poland has not,” which he attributed to a lack of initiative.

Kaczynski said that a general principle applied in international relations that if one country causes great harm to another, it must compensate for that harm. “And there is no reason why Poland should be excluded from the operation of this principle,” he said.
