Washington Post Quotes Rafi Prober on French Railroad’s Holocaust Role

The Washington Post, for its article “Opposition to Maryland rail line bidder raises questions about accountability for Holocaust,” quoted Akin Gump public law and policy partner Rafi Prober on the French state railroad SNCF’s attitude toward its history of transporting Nazi victims to concentration camps. 

Prober, who has led Akin Gump efforts in representing pro bono the group Coalition for Holocaust Rail Justice, said “SNCF is a real outlier. Most companies involved in the Holocaust have paid reparations to their victims. Reparations mean accountability, and they mean justice.”
