Greek PM Tsipras to Visit Germany's Holocaust Memorial

Greece Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will visit Germany's Holocaust memorial on Tuesday on the second day of his visit to the country that his radical leftist government has demanded pay World War Two reparations. The announcement of the visit to the Berlin memorial to Jews murdered by the Nazi regime, an unusual move for a foreign leader, came after Tsipras told a news conference with Chancellor Angela Merkel that his government's call for reparations from Germany is mainly a moral demand. When asked about his government's call for reparations that Germany has rejected, Tsipras told reporters, "We aren't linking it to the current discussion on the European crisis and Greece's position in the euro zone, and the need to quickly find a solution to move forward."
