France fined for deporting Jews (BBC)
France's government and state railway have been ordered to pay compensation for deporting Jews during World War II.

The case was brought by people whose relatives were taken by train to a transit camp at Drancy near Paris during the Nazi occupation of France.

More than 75,000 French Jews were transported from the camp to death camps in Germany.

A court in Toulouse found the French state and the rail firm SNCF had been complicit in crimes against humanity.

The government and SNCF have been ordered to pay compensation of 60,000 euros ($80,000, 43,000) to the family.

1. There is no amount of money... but $80,000 still sounds a little low.
