Holocaust train overcomes Berlin station ban

Breaking News

Thousands of Germans have queued for hours to see a mobile exhibition on the Holocaust that was barred from Berlin's central station.

Deutsche Bahn, the German railway company, refused to allow the "Train of Remembrance", which documents deportations by rail during the Second World War, to use the station and instead shunted it to the east of the capital.

Thousands still queued for up to four hours. "These masses demonstrate that they are ready to confront this painful chapter of German history," said Hans Minow, an exhibition spokesman.
