Holocaust Survivor To Testify On MD Rail Bill

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A measure before Maryland lawmakers would require companies involved in transporting victims to concentration camps during World War II to pay reparations in order to bid for public-private partnership projects in the state.
    
The bill is getting a hearing Monday before the House Ways and Means Committee.
    
Leo Bretholz of Pikesville is a 93-year-old Holocaust survivor who is planning to testify in favor of the legislation.
    
Keolis America, which is majority-owned by the French rail company SNCF, is one of four consortiums of bidders competing for a contract to build Maryland's Purple Line light rail. Historians say SNCF transported about 76,000 Jews and other prisoners to concentration camps.
