Greek Jews Demand German Reparations for Ransoms Paid During Holocaust


The Jewish community of Salonika, Greece has petitioned the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), based in Strassbourg, to order Germany to return to them the funds that were paid as ransoms to the Nazis in their efforts to be released from forced labor during the Holocaust.

The petition states that despite having paid the ransoms demanded, the Jews were still sent to the death camps.
