The families of Holocaust survivors and victims, including some living in the US, were to meet in Paris on Wednesday to discuss the next steps in their legal battle against the French railway company, Israel Radio reported. The families have demanded compensation from the railway for aiding the Nazis in transporting Jews to concentration camps during the Holocaust. Some six months ago, a French court ordered the company to pay two survivors 62,000 Euro in compensation. The company has said that following the court's ruling, the railway has received at least 1,200 compensation demands.
