Quote of the Day

if Poland will ever be in a situation in which it pays compensation sums for World War II, it would be as if Hitler had won. As long as the Law and Justice [PiS] party is in power such a thing will never happen.

  -- Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki

Morawiecki's words are being explained to mean that ultimately Germany occupied Poland and was responsible for the war, including what happened in Poland. If Poland pays, it indicates guilt of the Poles when it was really the Germans at fault.

He might have a point about Germany occupying the Poles and being responsible for the war, but at the end of the day if it was Poles that took the property of their Jewish neighbors, they should have to give it back to the inheritors, or pay for it. If the Germans took it, the Germans should pay. If the Ukrainians took it, they should pay. And if the Poles took it in Poland, they should pay.
