French railway faces criticism for role in WWII

Is there anyone alive and working for the SNCF who was working during WWII?

ORLANDO, Fla. — A bid by the French national railway to build the first high-speed tracks in the United States is running into resistance from Holocaust survivors because of the company's role in transporting Jews to Nazi death camps.

One of those leading the charge against the railway is Florida resident Rosette Goldstein, whose father was taken away by Nazi soldiers, shoved in a cattle train and delivered to his death during World War II. Goldstein plans to voice her opposition on behalf of many Holocaust survivors to the railway Thursday when the Florida Department of Transportation holds a public meeting in Orlando on the $2.6 billion high-speed rail project, which would connect Tampa and Orlando.

Goldstein and others — including legislators — want the railway, known as the SNCF, to formally apologize for its role in the war, give full access to its records and make reparations...more

Why don't I ever hear about Evonik industries which is currently located in several states? The parent company made Xyclon B for use in the gas chambers.

This is just a shakedown.
