May 8 and 9, 2020, we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the liberation from fascism and its barbaric war by the military victory over the German Nazi regime.

In Germany and other countries there still live former Waffen-SS fighters who – from Belgium to Latvia and Finland – receive pensions from Germany for their participation in massacres, genocide and war of annihilation. At the same time, their victims are still denied any compensation.

The FIR supports all initiatives to stop the pension payments to former members of the Waffen-SS as well as the demands of survivors and relatives of victims of the numerous massacres, the Jewish community in Thessaloniki, the Greek state and other victims of Nazi terror for compensation.

At a time when extreme right-wing, nationalist and authoritarian movements are growing all over the world and are partly governments, it is important that the punishment of perpetrators and the compensation of victims be made clear:

Fascism is not an opinion, but a crime!
