Polish FM: Germany should pay $1 trillion for WWII

If Germany pays does it mean Pomerania, Silesia and Masuria will be returned?
Quote:
Germany should consider paying Poland as much as $1 trillion in World War II reparations, according to the Polish foreign minister. Poland’s foreign minister Witold Waszczykowski told local radio station RMF that “serious talks” were needed with Germany to "find a way to deal with the fact that German-Polish relations are overshadowed by the German aggression of 1939 and unresolved post-war issues." He said Poland’s material losses were about $1 trillion, or higher.

The country’s right-wing government has dismissed a 1953 resolution by Poland’s former communist government which dropped any claim to reparations from Germany, and are instead claiming that Germany is “shirking” its moral responsibility.

... of course that's provided the former Soviet Republics give back the 1945 USSR Curzon Line-ish gains at Poland's expense. What say we reconstitute the Ottoman Empire while we're at it!

Hey Jose why don't we ask for Texas back? - a precedent may be set! perhaps the current Duke of Normandy (HM Queen Elizabeth II) could ask for the Duchy to be restored to its rightful owner. Norway could start demanding bits of Scotland back too.
Can Lithuania demand compensation from Poland for what the Poles did 1920 -26? How far back can one go? Could Britain, France and Spain send Rome a bill?

(my bold.)

They can try, but Nardini's is still on the Largs sea-front, and the prices are still as shocking.

Friction creates warmth - maybe we should abolish Poland altogether so that Russia and Germany can lie closer together ?

Not to be a stickler, but everything in pink in the above map had been obtained by Poland by force at the expense of its neighbours (Ukraine, Lithuania and USSR) between 1919 and 1923. The 1947 border line essentially returned the eastern Polish border to that which it had been following the peace treaties ending WWI (Curzon line).
