Dr Ludivine Broch was interviewed by French television channel France 24 about the recent decision of the French government to pay $60m of compensation to Holocaust victims deported between 1942 and 1944.

In return, the Americans have agreed to protect the French National Railway Company (SNCF) from the legal and economic sanctions it was facing in the United States. The SNCF had been heavily criticised in America for its role in the deportations of Jews from France. Dr Broch, who specialises in French railway workers in the Second World War, explained the historical, political and economic contexts of this decision.
