No money has been paid by the German authorities specifically to provide compensation for former British prisoners of war (POWs).
In 1964, the then Federal Republic of Germany paid £1 million to the British Government to provide compensation for victims of Nazi persecution. The scheme focused on survivors of Nazi Concentration Camps. Servicemen held as ordinary POWs and civilian internees held in non-concentration camps were excluded. In the late-1990s, a fund totalling some £3.3 billion was set up by the German Government and industry to make payments to those civilians who were forced labourers. Again, service personnel held as POWs were excluded.
