ABC News: Poland is calculating its losses under Nazi occupation in preparation to claim compensation from Germany

The Polish parliamentary committee announced that the German occupation of the country during the Second World War caused the deaths of more than 5.1 million Polish citizens and the loss of assets and property worth 54 billion dollars.

According to the ABC News Network on Friday, the announcement of these figures comes in the context of the current Polish government to demand compensation for the Nazi occupation period (1939 – 1945), and that Warsaw remained under Soviet rule for decades after the war, and was unable to claim compensation from Germany independently.

The Committee noted that the total value of physical losses in cities exceeded 14 billion dollars, while the other damage included the sectors of agriculture and infrastructure.
