US, France in talks over Holocaust compensation

This photo taken on November 12, 2013, shows a high-speed TGV train at the Paris Lyon railway stationFrance and the US are in talks over compensation to American Holocaust victims that were transported to their deaths by France’s state-owned rail company, a lawyer involved in the negotiations said Friday. The sensitive, decades-long issue of SNCF’s role in the deportation of Jews to concentration camps — it recognizes it was a “cog in the Nazi extermination machine” — is threatening a reported $2.2-billion contract between the state rail company and the US state of Maryland. A bill in Maryland’s legislature wants to bar a subsidiary of SNCF from a public-private venture in the state, which borders Washington, DC, unless American Holocaust victims and their families are compensated by the rail firm.
