Compensation of Nazi victims resolved — Polish premierhome/News/World/Compensation of Nazi victims resolved — Polish premierWARSAW: Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki insisted Sunday that the question of Polish compensation for Jewish assets stolen by the Nazi was “definitively resolved,” rebuffing a US call for further action. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who visited Poland last week, called on Warsaw to move forward with legislation to help “those who lost property during the Holocaust era,”But Morawiecki told the PAP news agency Sunday: “The question of restitution of assets to US citizens of Jewish origin has been definitively resolved,” he said. “A law of compensation, signed with the United States settles the question, and frees Poland from these responsibilities,” Pompeo added. The compensation law to which he was referring to was passed in 1960. “I want to underline that: This subject does not exist,” he added.
