If this is true and there is no settlement for it, then reparations were a sham. Remember, if Hitler couldn't do without this help, then these helpers are responsible for millions of Russian deaths, millions of Jewish deaths, American, English, French, Gypsies, Polish, on and on, all dead because of the assistance they provided, worse yet, they were compensated for the loss of the facilities they built to aid Hitler as well, with American taxpayer dollars. Ugh! ...And no, not being alive or born then has nothing to do with it, it's a governments responsibility and that government lived through it and is still alive, without indemnity. today.
