I remember the large Yemenite immigration of the 1950’s and how they were treated. They were housed in tents, that were swamped with mud in the rainy season. And their life style was belittled by the Jewish Agency (from the secular left-wing) representatives and social workers who were supposed to help them!! On several occasions these social workers made fun of the beautiful Yemenite hand made work, and told them Israelis would laugh at their priceless bed coverings, and exchanged them for cheap ,tawdry valueless covers. Taking the Yemenite embroidered work for themselves.
Several occasions on going to the synagogues on Shabbat, they found them locked and the keys with the social workers, who were at their homes. No doubt having a good laugh at the plight of the Yemenite worshippers. BUT the worst was yet to come. Owing to the intolerable conditions, many of the babies were unwell. IN most cases not serious. They were taken to hospital, when the parents enquired about their children, they were told the babies had died. On asking to see the bodies, they were told the babies had already been buried. The parents were not satisfied, and kept pressing for a full inquiry. When at last the inquiry was held, it was most unsatisfactory, as documents from the hospital authorities, were either destroyed or non-existant. Several grave were dug up, and they were found to be EMPTY. IN other words the Yemenite babies had been kidnapped
