Nazi Video Shown on Athens Subway as Greece Seeks Billions From Germany By Andy Eckardt NBC News
MAINZ, Germany — Archival video footage highlighting Nazi atrocities in Greece is being shown to commuters on the Athens subway as part of a campaign demanding war reparations from Germany.
Seven decades after the end of World War II, the 50-second video is being shown at metro stations across the Greek capital to highlight the fallout of German occupation after 1941.
A compilation of images accompanied by dramatic music, the film starts off with the words: "We save the memory, we do not forget." It also features the tagline: "We claim what Germany owes to us."
It coincides with a government campaign seeking $300 billion in compensation from Germany and the return of "national treasures," which comes amid growing tensions between Athens and Berlin over the Greek financial crisis.ARTICLE + VIDEO
