This could open a can of worms: Pole sues Germany for 1944 injuries


A 69-year-old man in the Baltic city of Gdansk is suing Germany for injuries reportedly inflicted by Wermacht soldiers in occupied Poland in 1944.

Winicjusz Natoniewski filed a legal claim against Germany seeking $383,000 in damages for injuries he received during World War II when he was 6 years old in his native village of Lublewo, near Leby, in northeastern Poland, the Polish daily Fakt said Friday.

This is believed to be the first time that a Polish national has sued Germany and also first time that a foreign state has been…sued in Poland, the Serbian news agency Beta reported.

Beta quoted Polish international experts as saying Natoniewski has a good chance to win the case.
