WORLD WAR II and its aftermath
Christopher Jones writes: Germany has made amends to those who suffered slave labor conditions under the Nazis, and given that the use of slave labor is specifically prohibited by the Geneva convention, it is high time that the CIS states make similar amends to the Germans who suffered these unspeakable conditions. I would also add that there is a growing movement in favor of seeking compensation from the Polish and Czech governments for the forced deportation of ethnic Germans, robbery, rape and murders that followed WWII. I personally support them and the efforts of the Preussiche Treuhand. I would also add that I have never found a German over the age of 70 who has anything good to say about Russians.
