A federal lawsuit by a suburban Chicago descendant of Holocaust victims alleged the French national railway confiscated property and belongings from tens of thousands of Jews and other "undesirables" sent to Nazi concentration camps from France.
The proposed class-action suit, filed on International Holocaust Remembrance Day in federal court in Chicago, seeks compensation for the cash, silver, gold, jewelry, works of art, musical instruments and clothing taken from the victims as well as the earnings from the sale of their property.
The suit also seeks restitution from the railroad for the third-class train fares it billed the Nazis. But victims instead were stuffed into cattle cars for the journey to the concentration camps, according to the suit.
