Holocaust survivors: German rail restrictions 'undignified'





German state railway operator Deutsche Bahn has outraged Holocaust survivor groups by refusing to allow a traveling train exhibition into Berlin's main station.

The International Auschwitz Committee, founded by concentration camp survivors, expressed outrage at Deutsche Bahn's decision in a statement on Monday. Closing important stations to the exhibit is "incomprehensible and unacceptable."

Organizers of "Train of commemoration," which is supported by several grass-roots initiatives, has rejected Deutsche Bahn's suggestions for alternative stations, insisting that the exhibit should be held at the Berlin central station to draw more visitors.
