Representatives of the Dutch National Railway have agreed to meet with Jewish leaders to discuss making “a collective expression” that will recognize “the suffering and fate” of more than 100,000 Jews whom the railroad transported to their deaths in Nazi concentration camps during the Holocaust.
The suggestion that the railroad consider making a “collective expression” was made by a committee created by the railroad in January to establish the company’s historical responsibility.
