Greece seeks €280-340 bln in German WW II reparations

A special Parliament Committee set up to examine war reparations and debts owed by Germany was briefed Thursday on a report concerning Greece’s claims for German reparations and the repayment of a forced occupation loan, drafted by a special finance ministry committee.

According to the honorary general director of Greece’s General Accounting Office Panagiotis Karakousis, who was on the committee that drafted the report, “there is no evidence to indicate that Greece has at any time given up on or withdrawn any of its demands from either World War I or World War II.”

Based on its findings, Greece’s claims on Germany are in the region of 280 and 340 billion euros, by what Parliament President and committee chair Zoi Konstantopoulou described as “the most conservative estimates”.
