Dutch Railway To Discuss New Reparations

Meeting would follow start of 'moral gesture' program to pay survivors, spouses and children.

October 24, 2019

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.

Dutch government gives $2.76 million to restoring Jewish cemeteries

November 15, 2019

AMSTERDAM — The Dutch government has allocated $2.76 million toward the maintenance and restoration of Jewish cemeteries in the Netherlands.

Culture Minister Ingrid van Engelshoven announced the funding last week in a letter to the lower house of the parliament.

Local Jews have trouble maintaining the graves because the community’s numbers never recovered after the Holocaust. Dutch Jews suffered the highest death rate of any Western European country occupied by the Nazis, in part because of local collaboration.
