In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Sunday, the NGO Aviv for Holocaust survivors published a report reviewing changes made to survivors’ services for the year 2012.

As the organization states in the report, while some of the changes benefited survivors’ rights, others had a negative impact on them.

Amongst this year’s positive changes in the field, Aviv mentions the Finance Ministry’s Holocaust Survivors Rights Authority which changed the terminology describing the financial grant for survivors that it provides. In the past, the grant was described as dedicated to “the needy.”
