Holocaust survivors need to know their rights

Holocaust survivors – which can be defined in more than one way – are entitled to a wide variety of benefits.  If you or a loved one fit that description, make sure you know what benefits are available.

There are several non-profits dedicated to making Holocaust survivors aware of potential benefits.

  1. The Center for Organizations of Holocaust Survivors in Israel published a comprehensive guide to the Rights of Holocaust Survivors in Israel.
  2. Spring for Holocaust Survivors also offers a wealth of information and even short videos which explain the benefits available.

There are many different sources and funds – all with different definitions of who can make a claim – which offer a wide variety of benefits including monthly pensions, rent subsidies, medical subsidies, discounts on taxes, and more.

Honoring survivors is part of our collective responsibility to ensure that the Holocaust never happens again.  Let your family and friends know.
