Historian attributes mystery of missing Yemenite children to chaos, ill health, paternalism

In stark contrast to the accounts of Yemenite and other families about the disappearance of their infant children in the early years of the state, Dr. Dov Levitan, a historian at Bar- Ilan University’s Interdisciplinary Department of Social Sciences and an expert on Israel’s Yemenite community, gives a starkly different account of the disappearance of the children.

Levitan has researched the issue for 25 years and has given evidence to the Shalgi Committee and the State Commission of Inquiry that investigated the allegations.
