February 16, 2009 17:02

France's top judicial body has recognized the French government's responsibility for the deportation of Jews during World War II. The Council of State's declaration is the clearest such recognition of the French government's role in the Holocaust. The council found that the French government at the time was responsible for deportations that led to anti-Semitic persecution. The decision released Monday also found that the deportations have been "compensated for" since 1945.
