That statement is such garbage. Jewish people have received forms of "restitution" for the atrocity that happened to them, Native Americans received some form of "restitution" for having their land taken from them, Japenese-Americans received "restitution" for the crime against them during WW2. So I disagree with with your idea of "restitution is akin to punishing the son for the crimes of the father". While "the son" is being punished, "the crimes of the father" need to be addressed for the goodness of the people that were affected. By the way, why don't we stress to Jewish people that they not address their grievances?
