Reader feedback: Compensation only token

Re: "Cabinet moves to reimburse Holocaust victims", By Martina Pisárová, Vol. 8 No. 20, May 27-June 2.

The world is a very funny place. I just read that Libya (Gadaffi) has offered $2.9 billion to the families of the victims of the Lockerbie Pan-Am crash, and that this means that the family of every victim will receive $10 million.

The "reparations" now being suggested for the Jews deported from Slovak soil are so minor in comparison that it's not even worth the Maggi in the soup!
