Why is Poland demanding compensation from Germany? | TV Shows

Are from: Inside story

The German government said the issue of World War II reparations was ‘closed’.

Poland said it would demand $1.3 trillion from Germany for atrocities committed during the second world war.

The move followed the release of a report on the costs of Nazi Germany’s occupation of Poland from 1939 to 1945.

Poland’s right-wing government says the country has yet to receive full compensation.

But Germany insists reparations were paid in the post-war years and the issue of compensation is now closed.

So, what’s behind Poland’s move? Is it politically relevant?
