A long-awaited reparation for a wild massacre


On the 10th of June 1944 the residents of the Greek village Distomo suffer one of the most violent attacks to have taken place during the Second World War. Within a few hours, 218 civilians are killed by the German soldiers. 65 years later, “The New Files” return to the village that was almost wiped out in one day, and reveal that a tribunal in Italy is about to force Germany to pay 25 million euros in reparations to the descendants of the victims, and how this decision will lead the way for tens of other Greek villages, that suffered the same destiny, to demand compensation.
