Because Holocaust victims received the reparations as well as their surviving spouse. Slavery has been abolished for some time, I believe. Unless we have a world record, I can't think of any reports of one living slave who would receive reparations in the same manner as Holocaust victims. Come to think of it, the population of living Holocaust victims and their spouses are dwindling and those reparations will be paid in full upon their death.

I dunno about that man, I have a friend who is just a couple of years older than me (I am in my mid-20's) whose dad has the number tattoo. And he's not even close to the first one I've seen - there are a lot of people out there with Nazi numbers on their arms. No money could ever repay the damage done to these people and their families.
