For full reconciliation with Germany to occur, reparations and compensation are needed

 War reparations are a terrific opportunity for the German government to close the matter of financial liability for the Second World War - said the President of the Institute of National Remembrance, Karol Nawrocki.

He says that there are many German businesses built on the "potential of cruelty, barbarism, war, forced labor of 2.5 million Poles, harm in concentration camps."

"There is an economic or financial profit that could end discussions about reparations once and for all - not in the space of consciousness, and memories, but in the area of Germany's responsibility for the Second World War" - said Nawrocki.

As he emphasized, he is surprised that at the political level, successive German governments do not want to settle this dispute, and it would be an act of "hard material justice".
