PARIS –  Thousands of Holocaust survivors and family members in the United States and elsewhere will be entitled to compensation from a $60 million French-U.S. fund announced Friday, as reparations to those deported by France's state rail company SNCF during the Nazi occupation.

As part of the deal, the U.S. government will work to end lawsuits and other compensation claims in U.S. courts against the SNCF, which is bidding for lucrative high-speed rail and other contracts in U.S. markets. State legislators in Maryland, New York, Florida and California have tried to punish SNCF for its Holocaust-era actions.

"This is another measure of justice for the harms of one of history's darkest eras," said U.S. Special Adviser on Holocaust Issues Stuart Eizenstat, who spent three years working with French officials on the agreement.

The French Foreign Ministry and U.S. State Department announced an accord Friday for the compensation fund, which will be financed by the French government and managed by the United States. The agreement will be signed on Monday in Washington, but for the money to be authorized it still must get approval from the French Parliament, which could take months.

The French government has already paid more than $6 billion in reparations -- but only to French citizens and certain deportees. The new deal will allow compensation for Americans, Israelis and some others who were not eligible for other French reparations programs.

There are around 250 people in the U.S. who are eligible under the new fund as direct survivors or spouses, according to an advocacy group, but several thousand may be eligible as heirs to survivors or spouses who died between 1948 and today.

The money should break down to about $100,000 each for survivors, and tens of thousands of dollars for spouses, Eizenstat said.

SNCF transported about 76,000 French Jews to Nazi concentration camps, though experts disagree on its degree of guilt. SNCF has expressed regret for what happened, but argues that it had no effective control over operations during the Nazi occupation from 1940 to 1944.

Although SNCF is not a party to the agreement, the company will contribute $4 million over the next five years to fund Holocaust memorials and museums in the U.S., Israel and France, according to Eizenstat.

The French government pledged to encourage French lawmakers to approve the deal, Eizenstat said.

"The objective today was to be able to provide reparations -- even 70 years later -- that they could claim, given the trauma, the barbarity and the horror that the deportation represented for them," said Patrizianna Sparacino-Thiellay, a French ambassador for human rights and spoliation, who was a key negotiator and architect of the deal.

Amid the legal challenges to SNCF, Eizenstat said the French approached him two years ago to talk about a possible deal, and expressed a desire to conclude an agreement by the end of this year.

The French government is holding several events marking 70 years since the Allies liberated France from Nazi control in 1944.

Word of the accord comes as France, home to western Europe's largest Jewish community, is battling new concerns about anti-Semitism. French authorities and Jewish leaders denounced a rape and robbery attack with anti-Semitic overtones this week against a French couple.

The number of anti-Semitic incidents in France has grown 91 percent this year compared to last year, according to CRIF, France's leading Jewish organization.  Incidents such as graffiti on Jewish gravestones and violent assaults spiked around the Gaza war this summer, and Jewish groups are concerned about rising Islamic extremism and the resurgent far right.

U.S. Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney of New York, who had pushed to get the U.S. government to pressure the French government to agree to compensation, hailed the deal as a "breakthrough in a decades-long struggle for justice."

Stuart Eizenstat was a major Jew macher involved with crooked Carter Presidency. Stuart Eizenstat & Alfred Kahn enabled massive Jewish corruption in re to airline/trucking deregulation. Obama (as virtual carbon copy of shill Carter) pushes for Mexican trucking firms to get into US market.

$60 million add'l reparations from SNCF a cruel joke to survivors. $6 million each for every survivor. Jews aren't in this for the money, it's the principal!

Good thing the heirs can get the money.

Are jews intentionally setting themselves up, or are they just that blind in their greed and delusions?

JMSM occasionally brings up subject of Black reparations though usually with a snide tone. But consider that the heyday of Black 'civil rights' movement was in '60's which was 100 years after end of War of Northern Aggression. Holohoax almost 80 years old now & no public figure states "enough already". In near future perhaps we'll see more moves to support 2nd/3rd-gen Survivors with German/American taxpayers footing the bill for some sort of open-ended stipends. Holocaust was so uniquely terrible, you see, that it's unfair to narrow things down to just compensating for obvious quantifiable losses.

Jewish fraud is neverending.

How about the millions of Germans who got displaced, bankrupted, orphaned, widowed, raped, starved, tortured, etc, by Morgenthau, Eisenhauer et al.

The coverup of the real holocaust (Dresden, Hamburg, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, etc.) and subsequent rapings of Germany and enslavement of Japan, etc. via constant holohoax reinforcement remains the most critical load-bearing member of the foundation of modern zionism.

Yes, the real holocausts are underplayed in JMSM--so Holohoax has an additional benefit in discounting Dresden etc. JMSM actually does, though rather infrequently, mention these things but only to illustrate that Germans are obtuse bastards to think 25K (Wiki) Dresden deaths equates to 6 Million. Plus WWII was a desperate time, nobody blames London/Pentagon for going a bit overboard.

Hiroshima/Nagasaki was supposedly Truman's doing--but an old '45 Time article stated that the nuke decision was made by some mysterious committee.

Wildly popular (esp among teens/college) author Kurt Vonnegut wrote anodyne Slaughterhouse Five which was made into a TV movie. Reporter EB uncovered that Vonnegut is a Crypto despite German-sounding name.

One wonders how many Vietnamese killed by napalm. JMSM featured famous photo of burned girl but only after they had tired of the war. JMSM doesn't even talk about using white phosphorus in Iraq.
