Village Voices: French Railroads, the Holocaust & Maryland

Tuesday, October 03 at 7:00 pm for 1 hour
NE Public Library, 330 7th St NE -mezzanine

In 2010, the state of Maryland decided to contract for commuter train service in the state.  Keels, a subsidiary of the French national railroad, intended to bid. However, Holocaust survivors living in Maryland persuaded the Maryland legislature to demand that anyone bidding on the contract had to disclose all records relating to "direct involvement in the deportation of victims" because French trains had been used to deport victims from France during the Holocaust. The legislature required that the bidder have an historian and an archivist analyze the records in question.  Trudy Peterson tells her story, as the archivist, looking at the French railroad records and the consequences of the Maryland requirement.
