Housing project for Holocaust survivors named after the Auschwitz prosecutor Dr. Fritz Bauer

Crowdfunding campaign of the Israeli National Fund Keren Hayesod

The Israeli National Fund has launched a campaign under the patronage of Federal Justice Minister Christine Lambrecht (SPD).

Today, September 13-15, Keren Hayesod launches a fundraising campaign to benefit Holocaust survivors, some of whom live in precarious and poor conditions.

180,000 Holocaust survivors living in Israel urgently need support

Many of the Holocaust survivors living in Israel receive little or no pensions, and this with constantly rising rents and apartments that are not age-appropriate. Certainly some are better off, especially if there are families who can help, but this is rarely the case. The international aid organization GAIN estimates that of the survivors in Israel, as many as 45,000 live below the poverty line and are in urgent need of support.

In Beersheva, the regional capital in the Negev desert, the new construction of an Amigour Center, a housing project for Holocaust survivors with 111 apartments for needy senior citizens, is now to help improve this situation. Several floors of the new construction project are to be named after the Social Democrat and Auschwitz prosecutor Dr. Fritz Bauer.
