      German compensation claims rejected
      A Prague-based Czech-German foundation has rejected a demand for millions of
      euros in compensation to ageing Germans who were expelled from
      Czechoslovakia after WWII. Representatives of the Sudeten German expellees
      have expressed regret over the decision. The head of the Sudeten German
      Association Bernt Posselt said it was a wasted opportunity to heal old
      wounds and see justice done. The Association had asked the Czech-German
      Foundation to release some 4,5 million euros in compensation to some 2,000
      Sudeten Germans. Although Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer said he would
      welcome the initiative he stressed that the foundation must decide
      independently of politicians. The demand for compensation still angers many
      Czechs, who argue that the expulsions were a consequence of the Nazi
      invasion and numerous atrocities committed on Czech soil during WWII.
