The French railway system, SNCF, has signed an agreement with the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem to increase research into the role the company played in deporting Jews to concentration camps.

SNCF will provide the museum with testimonies and documentation on about 80 mass transports of Jews from France, Yedioth Ahronot reported. This “strengthens SNCF’s commitment to complete transparency, acknowledgment of the past and commitment to remembrance of the victims of the tragedy of the Holocaust,” said SNCF senior vice president Bernard Emsellem.
