 I n five to 10 years, the remaining survivors of the Holocaust will have died. We will stand to honor their memories when the siren blows on Holocaust Remembrance Day, and many of us will weep. Schools will continue taking teenagers through Auschwitz. Yad Vashem will go on documenting the Holocaust and Jewry’s unimaginable suffering at the Nazis’ hands.

Yet at present, a full quarter of Israel’s living Holocaust survivors exist on so little money that they can’t afford to both eat and buy medications, or get dental treatment, or pay for house repairs, or put installments down on a washing machine. Many are childless. Many are their families’ sole survivors, with no supportive network to see them through their last years.
