Ministry cancels funding for Holocaust event after learning that survivors would be charged entry fee

Published: 01.16.14, 13:33 / Israel News

The Ministry for Senior Citizens announced Thursday that it canceled its NIS 25,000 ($7,000) support for a remembrance event organized by the city of Ramat Gan for International Holocaust Remembrance Day, after a Ynet report revealed that participants would be charged NIS 20 ($6), including Holocaust survivors.

 

According to the ministry, their agreement included a condition that senior citizens would not be charged to attend the event. Minister Uri Orbach called charging survivors a "serious issue, and therefore I ordered to cancel the funding for the event." (Gilad Morag)
