Greeks bearing grudges

We've heard of fighting the last war, but paying for it after over six decades?
Greece is deliberating whether Germany still owes war reparations stemming from the Nazi occupation in World War II.
Surprise, an academic is on board;
Greek demands are quite justified, argues Hagen Fleischer, a historian and professor emeritus at the University of Athens. 
The bidding has begun at around $200 billion.  Which would help alleviate the Greek government's current troubles--they're being forced to fire 4,000 public employees, with more to come later.
