Intercst asked

If reimbursing slave labor for the victims of the Jewish Holocaust is the right thing to do, why is it wrong for the slave labor of Africans?

To which SloanT replied

I would fully support repaying slave labourers back, but only to the person enslaved

So let's say that a former Holocaust slave labourer dies prior to receiving his reparation payment. So nothing would paid to his estate? And if so, what would be the dis-incentive for the unscrupulous to just tie up payments in litigation until after the effected ones die?
