The events of October 7 have greatly affected Holocaust survivors in Israel, leading to feelings of deep shock, worry, and anxiety. In a meeting at the “Habait Hacham,” survivors expressed their mission to bring back all hostages from Gaza. Naomi Lichtwitz, a 91-year-old survivor, shared her sorrow and disbelief at the current events. Other survivors also expressed their shock and horror at the recent attacks and the kidnapping of innocent people. The survivors are calling for unity and support to bring back all the captives home. The harsh events have resurfaced painful memories for many survivors, and the “Warm Home” for Holocaust Survivors is providing warmth, love, and assistance to help them through these difficult days.
