sorry we survived!

5-August-2007, Jerusalem; Holocaust survivors stage a march and quiet demonstration, which they call “The March for Life” at the Wohl Rose Garden opposite the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament. Survivors protest a cut in government financial support for survivors, claiming they receive only a small fraction of German compensation funds.

Photo displays a Treblinka survivor wearing a stripped shirt symbolizing Nazi death camp prisoner uniform and a yellow Star of David with the German word “Jude” for Jew, obligatory for Jews in Nazi occupied Europe.

 Signs carried bear Hebrew slogans “Poor Holocaust Survivors”, “Holocaust and disgrace”, “Sorry we survived” and “There they deny the Holocaust, here you deny the survivors”.
