Statement from Federation of Polish Americans:

Poland has all the Legal and Moral Grounds for War Reparations from Germany.

On an historical note:
The main premise of Polish Parliament Bureau of Research legal opinion coincides with the position of the Federation of Polish Americans (FPA) from year 2000 on German responsibility. 

FPA filed in 2000 a Historical Brief on behalf of Polish war crimes’ victims in the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit (Eastern District Trial Court – Brooklyn).

The Brief was unprecedented in detailing of war crimes, crimes against humanity, and asset losses suffered by ethnic Poles, including Polish Americans, during Nazi Germany’s occupation of Poland (1939-1945). The international class action suit (common name, Swiss Banks Gold case), which sought to limit the claimant class for forced/slave labor compensation, was challenged by FPA and the PADC under the ‘Accused Organizations and Individuals in the Nuremberg Trial’ (1946) criteria.

 In short, it is the only comprehensive statement in the American judicial system of Poland's losses due to German war and occupation.  By citing the (International) Nuremberg Trail findings, it shows the inviolable nature of the judgment of guilt for those crimes.  Richard Kosinski was the filing attorney, and Dale Denda was the principal researcher/author of the Brief; both were officers of FPA.

Swiss Bankers Association et al., Defendants. United States Court Of Appeals For The Second Circuit - 225 F.3d 191.
