Reparation and Reconciliation

The vanquished must pay reparations. That custom has a long tradition. Hence, Germany paid after World War II – to Israel (which didn’t exist during the war), and to the survivors among her victims. Yet, the other countries that had been invaded by Germany didn’t see a penny. Well, they merely plundered and sliced and diced Germany as such… Papers in this section deal with the reparations paid by Germany, and that country’s attempt at reconciliation with its former enemies.
