According to the Dutch daily De Volkskrant, NS, the national Dutch railway, announced in a statement on Wednesday that will give money to  compensate survivors and families of Holocaust victims deported on Dutch trains to Nazi concentration camps during the World War II.

The announcement comes after an extensive research over the matter and an opinion in that sense, issued by an independent committee. Although the opinion was not binding the national rail company decided to follow it.

The decision was taken at a ceremony in Utrecht. The NS claimed that the group identified include Jews and other minorities persecuted by the Nazis.

It is estimated that 100,000 Dutch Jews were extradited and killed in Nazi concentration camps.
