Greek Justice Minister asks compensations for nazi wartime crimes in Greece

Nikos Paraskevopoulos said he was “ready to approve” a Greek Supreme Court ruling in 2000 that would allow the appropriation of assets belonging to Germany’s archaeological school and the Goethe Institute. (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
