Mateusz Morawiecki, Poland's prime minister, in a Wednesday published text on the portal of Germany's 'Der Spiegel' weekly, wrote that the German occupation of Poland during WWII was one of the cruellest in European history.

Morawiecki noted that millions of Polish citizens have never received compensation for the unimaginable human and material losses they suffered during World War II.

"We know how difficult it is to reach the modern world with this truth. But in relations between people, as well as between countries, truth and justice should be the highest values. With this in mind, we demand that our German partners finally take on the political, historical, legal and financial responsibility for all consequences of the attack on our country," the PM wrote.
