A film about the last trainload of Jews from Berlin to Auschwitz has its premiere on Thursday amid controversy over the German rail operator's refusal to allow exhibitions in stations about its role in transporting the Nazis' victims to their deaths. The rail operator, Deutsche Bahn, has financed "Der letze Zug" (The Last Train), which portrays the journey in April 1943 of 688 Jews from the German capital to the infamous death camp in Poland where 1.1 million people were put to death. AFP reports.
