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.
