Germany owes Greece €350bn in war reparations

A woman to look at is Zoe Konstantopoulou, speaker of the Greek Parliament. "While Tsipras, Yanis Varoufakis and their negotiators have been trying to get the country’s debt reduced via the IMF and ECB, Ms Konstantopoulou has been working to get it declared invalid," I read recently in a blog post by Paul Mason.
"Ms Konstantopoulou’s debt truth committee, set to report on 18 June, is said to be on the point of finding some of Greece’s original bailout debt, from either 2010 or 2011, was unlawfully contracted. In addition, Ms Konstantopoulou is armed with a finding from experts that Germany owes Greece €350bn in war reparations – more than the whole of its debt to Europe," Paul Mason added.

In another article, "Zoe Konstantopoulou: Each child in Greece owes 32,500 euros", I read:

"Speaker of the House of Greek Parliament, Zoe Konstantopoulou, took the podium at the Forum European des Alternatives taking place in Paris on May 30-31.
'The battle Greece is giving is a battle for all nations of Europe for democracy, freedom and dignity,' she said. 'And it is a battle that must be won!'
She underlined that austerity measures and memorandum-styled policies have created an unprecedented humanitarian crisis in Greece with dizzying unemployment figures, especially young women. She underlined the consequences of policies that have increased the numbers of homeless people, increasing poverty and social exclusion.
'Austerity kills society and democracy,' she said. 'We should stop before we kill hope for the younger generation. Each child born in Greece owes 32,500 euros and that is a huge injustice.'"
