Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau on Monday signed a diplomatic note, to be sent to Berlin, demanding reparations from Germany for German “aggression and occupation” during World War II.

“The parties must take immediate action aimed at permanent, comprehensive and final legal and material regulation of the issue of the consequences of German aggression and occupation between 1939 and 1945,” the letter reads, according to Polish public television TVP.

Thus, Warsaw demands from the German authorities a series of payments to serve as “compensation for material and immaterial years caused to the Polish state,” including the return of Polish assets confiscated by Nazi Germany, as well as adequate cooperation on the commemoration of Polish victims of World War II.

For the Polish authorities it is also important for the German government to take effective measures to educate its own society on a “true picture” not only of the war, but also of the consequences, especially the damage and harm to Poland and its population.

“Such regulation will allow Polish-German relations to be based on justice and truth and will lead to the closing of painful chapters in the past and ensure further development of bilateral relations,” Minister Rau asserted.

This diplomatic note will be sent to the German Foreign Ministry, although Rau and his German counterpart, Annalena Baerbock, will have the opportunity to address the matter face to face at a meeting scheduled for Tuesday.

The Polish authorities have drafted this document after receiving a report on the state’s losses as a result of the German occupation in World War II. The report estimates the economic damage at 6.2 billion sloti (1.3 billion euros).
