Subject(s):  Reparations, El Al
Cups made for El Al, the State of Israel's national airline, as part of war reparations.

In 1952, Germany agreed to pay 3 billion Deutschmarks to Israel as war reparations. Since Germany didn't have the money at the time, it was mostly paid in goods and services. El Al's first services of cutlery and ceramics were produced by Germany as part of the reparations agreement.
