Breakthrough for Greek Jews

Some good news from Greece. Jewish community leaders there have reported a breakthrough in their campaing to sue the German state.

The head of the campaign group, David Saltiel, told Agence France Presse on Thursday that the group had unearthed written evidence, recovered from banking archives, that a payment of one billion drachmas was made to the Nazis with seven different cheques.

The group "has started a legal process aiming to recover the ransom from the German state," Saltiel said.

"We are waiting for an imminent decision from the Greek Supreme Court about the continuation of this action," he added.
