Survivors demand more financial aid from Germany

It is hard to argue with Holocaust survivors who say they have lost their pride and do not appreciate the public’s rebuke.

Each conversation with those who were there – at the ghettos, the concentration and extermination camps – starts with a long review of the history of the reparations agreement Israel reached with Germany, and ends in a frustrated tone.

“Every now and then I think of my family, which was a middle-class family; the house, the pictures the diamond jewelry and the land. They stole everything from us; they took a thousand times more than they paid back,” Uri Hanoch told The Jerusalem Post.

Hanoch is a Holocaust survivor and the chairman of the organization for the survivors of Dachau, the first concentration camp built by the Nazis in Germany in 1933.
