BBC News | Americas | US ponders Nazi slave compensation
The United States Congress has begun considering a bill which would allow people used as forced labour by companies in Nazi Germany to sue firms in the American courts. The bill would extend the statute of limitations, so that compensation claims which expired in 1993 would be valid until 2010, and give the courts - rather than the State Department - power to consider the cases.
If the bill is approved, German companies like Volkswagen and Siemens which used slave labour could be ordered to pay out billions of dollars. American companies like Ford have also been accused of using slave labour in their factories in Germany before the outbreak of war.
