One of the most painful business in the history of Israel: Benjamin Netanyahu announces compensation for children abducted in the 1950s – News by sources


The Israeli government on Monday approved a plan to provide compensation to the families of thousands of children of Yemeni immigrants who mysteriously disappeared seven decades ago, the dpa reported. “The time has come for families whose children have been taken from them to receive recognition from the state and government of Israel and financial compensation,” said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Netanyahu called it “one of the most painful business” in Israel’s history and called on the Ministry of Education to include it in textbooks on Israel’s history. In total, 162 million shekels ($ 49.6 million) will be paid to affected families.

About 50,000 Jews immigrated from Yemen to the newly established state of Israel in the 1950s, many of them being placed in temporary refugee camps.

During that time, hundreds of children went missing, and many of the families claim to have been abducted and scattered throughout Europe. The fate of many of these children could never be clarified.

In 2016, the government opened a publicly accessible online database of more than 200,000 documents related to missing children.
