Poland may seek war reparations from Germany

By Vanessa Gera

Poland is looking into demanding reparations from Germany for the massive losses inflicted on the country during the Second World War, an official said.

The Polish parliament's research office is preparing an analysis of whether to make the claim and will have it ready by August 11, said Arakadiusz Mularczyk, a politician with the ruling Law and Justice party.

The step comes after Jaroslaw Kaczynski, Poland's most powerful politician, said the "Polish government is preparing itself for a historical counteroffensive".

The Warsaw Uprising of 1944 resulted in the killing of 200,000 Poles and the near total destruction of the city.
