Israeli governments have long discriminated against Holocaust survivors living in the Jewish state, and has underpaid each survivor by about NIS 2 million over the years, a state commission of inquiry said in a report released on Sunday.

‘Israeli governments have been neglecting survivors over the generations’

The panel, which was headed by former Supreme Court justice Dalia Dorner, found that Holocaust survivors living in Israel were receiving about 50 percent less than those who live in Germany.

A reparations agreement reached with Germany in 1952 stipulated that Israel would look after the survivors here, who would not be permitted to sue Germany directly.
