Next year, California will award contracts for construction of
the yellow brick road a high-speed rail system, and if you want a piece of the action, you better not have collaborated with the Nazis, Buster:
The French rail company Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer Français (SNCF) is among the bidders.
SNCF provided trains, personnel and logistics that sent thousands of Jews, American soldiers and others to concentration camps.
The bill’s author, State Assemblyman Bob Blumenfield, who represents the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles, said that although SNCF was the impetus for his bill, the legislation would apply to any company that transported persons to concentration camps from 1942 to 1944.
I assume Blumenfield will eventually get around to excluding all the companies who did business with the Third Reich from doing business with the Golden State.
