A Dutch railway unveiled a plan on Wednesday to provide reparations to Holocaust survivors and the families of those who perished in concentration camps under the Nazi occupation.
Roger van Boxtel, CEO of Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS) revealed the multimillion-dollar proposal during an event in the Utrecht Railway Museum, according to Deutsche Welle, a German news outlet.
The article goes on to state the following:
NS announced that the “moral gesture” will compensate several thousand survivors who were transported to various concentration camps before they were eventually liberated. Those individuals will be eligible to receive $17,080 and include Jews as well as members of the Roma and Sinti communities.
Relatives of those who perished after they were herded to the concentration camps could receive more than $5,700.
At the height of World War II, the Dutch railway ran special trains to transit camps where Jews and other minorities awaited deportation to Nazi death camps. In a "moral gesture," the company will now pay millions in compensation. https://t.co/YTwvKwgatf
