Greece calls on Germany to negotiate over war reparations

The Greek government says it has asked Germany to enter negotiations regarding Athens' claim for reparations from the two world wars. Germany hasn't been willing to reopen talks, saying the issue was settled long ago.

Greece's ambassador to Germany submitted a formal request on Tuesday for Berlin to enter talks on paying war reparations Athens claims Greece is owed from World War I and World War II, Greece's Foreign Ministry said.

Memorial on Nazis’ Overlooked Crimes in Greece Opens in Germany

A German museum has created a new exhibition to highlight the atrocities carried out by the Nazi occupation forces in Greece, which its organizers say are largely overlooked or unknown in Germany.

The outdoor exhibit, entitled “German Crimes in Greece” will last until February, 2021. It has been set up on the railings surrounding the Villa ten Hompel Memorial Museum in the western German city of Münster, which commemorates crimes committed by the police and the administrative authorities during the Nazi era.

The museum says that central events of the Second World War, including occupation, mass shootings, the deportation of Jews, resistance and collaboration, also took place in Greece.

While many Germans are well aware of the atrocities committed by the Nazis in Germany and elsewhere, little is known about the crimes committed in Greece.

Greece makes fresh WWII reparation claims from Germany
Greece has renewed its calls for negotiations with Germany on reparations for damage caused in World War II. "These demands are valid and active," a Greek official said.

The government in Athens has revived its demand for talks with Germany on wartime reparations just ahead of the 80th anniversary of the invasion of Greece by German troops in World War II.

"The question remains open until our demands are met. These demands are valid and active, and they will be asserted by any means," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Alexandros Papaioannou told the German news agency DPA.

Greece last made an official call for negotiations in 2019, under leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. But the government of current conservative Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in January 2020 that Athens still considered the issue an open one, although it had so far refrained from pressuring Berlin on the matter.

The cost of the damage caused by Nazi Germany in Greece during the war has been estimated at €289 billion ($339 billion) by a Greek parliamentary commission. That amount includes a loan that Greece was forced to grant the German central bank.

After invading Greece on April 6, 1941, German armed forces went on to carry out numerous massacres in the country, with tens of thousands of civilians dying during the conflict.
