      SYMBOLIC HOLOCAUST SUIT BY SURVIVOR THROWN OUT

      Paris--A court ruled that too much time had elapsed for a French Jew to try
      to collect a symbolic $1.14 [one Euro] reparation from the state-run
      railway for assisting in the deportation of his parents to Nazi camps.

      The court threw out the suit brought by 82-year-old Kurt Schaechter on the
      grounds that there is a 30-year limit for collecting indemnities.

      The judicial clock began ticking "at the date of the tragic death of his
      parents, therefore only several days after their transport was carried out,
      in conditions void of all humanity, in freight trains or animal cars
      belonging to the National Society of French Railroads," the court ruling
      reads.
