Nederlandse Spoorwegen to Compensate Victims

Post by HistPolity » 29 Jun 2019 12:59

Dutch rail company Nederlandse Spoorwegen will compensate those impacted by the company's collaboration with the Nazi regime in deporting Jews and others during WWII.
The compensation payments are “a moral gesture by which NS wishes to express the recognition of its share in the individual suffering inflicted by the occupying forces on those involved and their direct surviving relatives,” the committee said.

France's state rail company SNCF made a similar move to compensate Holocaust survivors and their families in 2014.
