    "But the money did not go to all the countries that were devastated and whose people were slaughtered by the German military, but almost only to the Jews and Israel." - no, that's not quite right... 1. reparations were not only paid money, but also in technology and land of which so much went to Poland, the Soviet Union etc... (you can see still today so much German machinery in Russian companies which was taken from East Germany there 50 years ago...) Reparations to Israel were probabely mainly money... 2. what do you think, where, e.g., the Uranium for the first Russian nuclear bombs came from? Southeast Germany. This was so much more worth than money for the Soviet Union in these times... so, maybe you underestimate this issue considerably...
