"Decades of campaigning by victims of thalidomide, a morning sickness drug, have taken a new turn, with the first apology in 50 years to the victims and their families by the drug’s German manufacturer — and an incensed rejection of the apology as too little and too late from many of those it was intended to placate."

It does seem to be  too little too late.  Why has it taken this long for them to apologize and what has happened that has finally made them come forward?
