(EUobserver) Poland says Germany owes €717bn in WW2 damages

(EUobserver) Polish parliament lawyers said Monday that Poland could claim €717bn in WW2 reparations from Germany, but Warsaw might let the matter lie. The lawyers said Nazi Germany harmed Poland more than any European state but paid it less than 1% of what it did to Western nations. On TV, the Polish foreign minister said talks with Germany would be good to highlight issues, but were unlikely to end in payments.
