6,000 Holocaust survivors in Israel to receive increased benefits

Legislation granting Holocaust survivors greater monthly benefits from the government passed a preliminary reading Wednesday.

There are about 15,000 Holocaust survivors who came to Israel after 1953, who each receive 960 Euros per quarter from Germany. Of those, about 6,000 receive a guaranteed monthly income of NIS 2,200 from the state. However, the monthly 320 Euros from Germany is subtracted from that sum.
