Iran Hires French Railway That Sent Jews to Auschwitz

Iran has hired to reconstruct its railways a French government-owned company that has been hit with lawsuits over its reported transportation of more than 75,000 Jews to Nazi concentration camps, including the notorious Auschwitz death camp, according to recent contract announcements.

The Islamic Republic has hired SNCF, the French national rail company, to upgrade its rail systems and stations, according to multiple reports.

SNCF in recent years has faced a series of lawsuits brought by the survivors and relatives of Holocaust victims over the railway’s alleged deportation from France of around 76,000 Jews to Nazi concentration camps.
