(AP) -- THE HAGUE, Netherlands — The Dutch national railway company is setting up a commission to investigate how it can pay individual reparations for its role in mass deportations of Jews by Nazi occupiers during World War II.
In a written statement, the rail company, NS, said that its involvement in the deportations "is a black page in the history of our country and our company."
Company spokesman Erik Kroeze said Wednesday that the commission will look at making payments to Dutch Holocaust survivors and direct family members of Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis. He said it is not yet clear how many people could be eligible.
