US Holocaust survivors demand French rail ban

Survivors say France's national railway company should be barred from the US due to its involvement in the Holocaust.

    Holocaust survivors in the United States are campaigning to block France's national railway company from doing business in the US.

    The survivors and their families say the company was actively involved in transporting people to death camps during World War II.

    The French government has started talks on compensating survivors who live in the US.
