WARSAW, Poland A Polish official said Friday that Germany could owe his country $850 billion (690 billion euros) for the damage it inflicted during World War II.
Arkadiusz Mularczyk is leading a team in the parliament that is assessing potential reparations to Poland. Germany killed 6 million Polish citizens and caused great material losses during its nearly six-year occupation of Poland.
We are talking about very large, but justified amounts of compensation for war crimes, for destroyed cities, villages and the lost demographic potential of our country, Mularczyk said on Polsat News, a private broadcaster.
Last year, Polands ruling conservative nationalist Law and Justice party said the nation deserves compensation for its losses and set up a team of lawmakers under Mularczyks leadership to estimate how much is due.

City of Ruins - Warsaw 1945
A bit late for this, isn’t it? I think things like this, especially since all of Europe has now rebuilt, prospered, etc., is simply ridiculous.
Yeah, why no similar bill for Russia, they both sucked up roughly half of Poland each.
I mean I get the sentiment, but I see a new batch of polish jokes a-comin’.
It’s more of a message to the Germans not to impose immigrant quotas on Poland.
Is Russia trying to force Poland to take in thousands of Muslim refugees?
Wait til Europe gets the bill from America for liberating all of them.
good luck collecting. Maybe we give Viet Nam $4 billion as promised just like the Kenyan gave all that cash to the Mullahs.
No, butseems to me if they are trying to collect on a 65-70 year old perceived debt, the russians were extremely brutal to the poles and they set up a puppet regime there that lasted 50 years after the war was over, so,....
It’s not about the money. Poland is sending a message to Germany to lay off on the Muslim immigration.
I get what they are trying to say. And Russia shot down one of their airliners with a lot of top Polish people on it too not too long ago.
Looks like Detroit 2018! /s;)
Greece says ‘get in line’.
“Its not about the money. Poland is sending a message to Germany to lay off on the Muslim immigration.”
Exactly! Go Poland!
Anything which weakens Merkel and the establishment responsible for opening the floodgates of Europe to Mohammedan hordes is to be supported.
Poland has always been one America’s staunchest allies, and they’re one of a handful of Western countries resisting islamization. You shouldn’t knock them.
“Anything which weakens Merkel and the establishment responsible for opening the floodgates of Europe to Mohammedan hordes is to be supported.”
Yes! I cannot understand why some are apparently missing that point.
Im not, I am glad they are resisting islamization.
