BBC News - Does Germany owe Greece wartime reparations money?

The Greek government has threatened to seize German property as compensation for World War Two.

But what does Germany owe Greece, if anything, and why?

When we discussed this earlier, I was of the opinion that, while the German MSM and thus German public opinion is a lost cause, bringing up the issue of war debts could at least start some discussions in other countries. Well, mid-week I was in Vienna on business, and the evening news on Austrian state TV brought this first. What's more, the commentator accused Germany of hypocrisy, and although they stopped short of speaking about mutual debt relief, they showed the part of Tsipras's parliament speech where he spoke about the need for mutual consideration.
