Thousands of Holocaust Survivors in Israel Live in Poverty

FSWC Reports:


Fifty thousand of the country's 193,000 Holocaust survivors live beneath the poverty line while one-fifth have had to cut back on food and medicine in the last two years due to financial difficulties, a report by the Foundation for the Benefit of the Holocaust Victims in Israel released Wednesday said. 

The report, released just days before the Holocaust Memorial Day, said that 36 percent of survivors in Israel live alone and 10,000 are childless.
