German Railway to Show Holocaust Role in Exhibition





Germany's national railway, Deutsche Bahn, said Friday it had reached an agreement with the Transport Ministry to open an exhibition documenting its predecessor's role in the Holocaust.

The decision follows a clash between Deutsche Bahn chief Hartmut Mehdorn and Transport Minister Wolfgang Tiefensee over Mehdorn's refusal to host a French exhibit on the former Reichsbahn's role in deporting 11,000 Jewish children to concentration camps.

Mehdorn had argued that the focus of the French exhibition was too narrow, and Deutsche Bahn said the new display will be broader.
