Greek newspaper To Vima claims a secret report details huge amounts of money owed to Athens by Germany for World War Two reparations and unpaid loans.
The story has been picked up by the online edition of German newspaper Der Spiegel, who quote Greek organisations calculating the value of loans from Athens to Berlin taken by the Nazis between 1942 and 1944 at 54 billion euros.
Der Spiegel also puts the figure owed to Greece for reconstruction after the Second World War at 108 billion euros.
Though the details of the report are being kept under wraps by the Greek Finance Ministry and Greek paper To Vima refusing to print any specific figures, the sentiment is likely to anger those in the debt-stricken country facing austerity.
Germany is often a target of protesters in Athens, as cuts are made to ensure Greece gets two more bailout payments from the EU and IMF worth nine billion euros.
To prevent more anti-German sentiment, for now, the report is classified ‘TOP SECRET’, but To Vima is urging the Greek government to publish it.
