Israel Home to 220,800 Holocaust Survivors

The Times of Israel reports Israel is home to some 220,800 individuals whose lives were impacted by the Nazi regime:

Over a third, 38%, of the survivors came to Israel in the first three years after the state’s founding, between 1948 and 1951. These included most of the Jews leaving Poland, Bulgaria and Hungary, as well as Iraq and Libya.

In addition, more than one in three survivors living in Israel came from the Muslim world, including Morocco and Tunisia.
