The Dutch victims of the Holocaust this Wednesday asked for financial compensation for their transportation to the Nazi concentration camps, the price of which they had to pay themselves at that time.
This happened in a letter to Chancellor Angela Merkel, in which the victims demanded that Germany take responsibility for their deportation, as reported by the Dutch Nieuwsuur program.
Between 1941 and 1944, 107,000 Jews from the Netherlands were deported to Nazi concentration camps. Only around 5,000 survived.
At that time, the German railway network received an amount of money that today corresponds to several million euros for the transportation of the transport, which the deportees paid out of their own pockets.
