Dutch national railroad is going to compensate the people deported to concentration camps

Forums - Politics Discussion - Dutch national railroad is going to compensate the people deported to concentration camps

Seems a bit late if you ask me, almost to the point where the gesture is pretty much meaningless. Everyone whose parents or themselves where deported in WW2 is either 74 years old and most likely older.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

You should remove immediately this topic or I think that some people will discover today, that there are much more WWII revisionist in this world than what they imagine...You don't want hate and agressivity here in VGC...That's not what we want. You should close this topic and we don't talk about it.
Plus in the majority of countries for users here (nearly every country actually), there are laws which makes illegal to talk about this. Once again you should just close it.

So because other people might not enjoy this news it should be removed? That sounds a bit like the 40's to me.

OT: a bit late for the 'NS' to be doing this. Buying of some guilt-trip after 70+ years and wrapping it carefully in the name of the railways so no one else gets blamed. I just consider this part of the hypocrisie the Dutch government -and people, still portray to this day. The winner writes the history books right.



It’s nice for those that get some extra money, but it’s really not that useful anymore. Besides, the railways aren’t really to blame for anything. It’s not like they could say to Hitler “No, move your own prisoners”.



First they're taking people's jobs and now they're taking people's government handouts. What's next?



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

There shouldn't be anything that can't be discussed, even the worst subjects or events in human history need to be discussed but in a calm and respectful manner to both sides of what happened.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

I am not aware of any country where it's illegal to talk about the holocaust and concentration camps. However, lots of countries have a tiny subset of people who admire nazi ideologies and would prefer it if the huge wrongdoings of the nazis were swept under the rug, so that one day they could say it with pride that the nazis had the right ideas.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Idiotic idea that.

Making people today pay for something that their ancestors did (and probably had no actual choice in on top of that) is beyond ridiculous. Today's railroad company has absolutely nothing to do with that at all. And if it's a national railroad too then I expect it's taxpayer money they'll be paying out which is utterly disgusting. Why should today's taxpayers, who weren't even born at the time and had no say whatsoever in anything that went on, pay for that?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

They should rather invest this money in deradicalization program.
I guess those who were deported with those trains would love to see that everything possible is done in order for such things to never happen again.

When I first read the headline I thought this was going to be about the situation on the southern US border with all the left wing Democrats and media figures constantly comparing the makeshift housing centers for illegal immigrants to actual concentration camps. This must be the first time in history where people are voluntarily traveling hundreds if not thousands of miles just to get into said concentration camps lol.

- no one who comes here is hoping or volunteering to get put there. 

- they are definitionally concentration camps.

There are zero countries where it is illegal to talk about the Holocaust. 

Some countries have it illegal to support the Holocaust.  But no one is doing that here.  

There is no legality concern.

- so why can't the national railroad decide for themselves what to do?

- the company is state owned but it still makes money.  

- a company paying out to people who lost their parents, because they were involved in their deaths, is hardly disgusting.  Regardless of how long ago it was.
