Officials at Israel’s Interior Ministry indicate proof Swiss woman provided documenting her grandmother’s Jewishness is questionable. An aliya application from a Swiss woman whose grandmother was murdered by Nazis is expected to be denied in the coming days. Officials at the Interior Ministry have indicated that proof she provided documenting her grandmother’s Jewishness is questionable. Monique Martinek found out only two years ago that her grandmother – her father’s mother – had been murdered for being a Jew; before then, she and her family had no idea of their Jewish roots or the fate of the grandmother during World War II.Martinek’s father had been raised as an orphan in Switzerland after his mother was murdered in Vienna in 1941.“When I first found out, I was shocked; my father never knew what had happened to his mother,” said Martinek, a pediatric nurse who had been researching her family’s history at the national archives in Vienna.“But when I found out, a lot came to my mind and I realized that I never really fit in, in Switzerland.”After discovering her Jewish ancestry, Martinek found her great-grandmother’s grave, which showed her great-grandmother had been Jewish, and undertook to visit Israel.
