For decades, families of missing Yemenite children have desperately sought answers regarding the whereabouts of their lost sons, daughters, brothers and sisters.

On Wednesday, for the first time, they were able to view some 3,500 previously sealed case files from the investigative committees regarding their lost family members, made available by the State Archives.

Even families who did not initially participate in the committees’ investigations will be able to contact the archives and ask to see documents related to their missing family members.

While the documents in most cases do not provide a concrete answer as to the children’s fate, families can now view case files with hospital records, death certificates, photos and personal testimonies.

Families interested in searching for case files (in Hebrew) regarding a missing child can visit www.archives.
