Representatives of Holocaust survivors living in Israel held a meeting at the Prime Minister's Office on Monday, as part of the government's pledge to increase paltry grants to survivors. The negotiations between the two sides over the ultra-sensitive issue, which is expected to be resolved by next week, will continue on Tuesday. Holocaust survivors groups recently rejected a proposed government stipend of NIS 83 per month to some of the country's 250,000 Holocaust survivors as woefully insufficient.
