The Jewish Community of Tunisia receives a Claims Conference grant to provide social services programs for Jewish Nazi victims.

 

While a majority of the Jewish population has emigrated from Tunisia and Morocco, elderly Nazi victims who were unable to leave remain. All of them were subject to Nazi occupation during World War II. In many cases, these individuals never worked; they remain to this day outside even Tunisia’s modest welfare safety net, and are completely dependent on the Jewish community for all their medical, social, and financial needs. With the financial support of the Claims Conference, the community has expanded its social services program enabling vulnerable Nazi victims to remain at home. These services include a medical assistance program, which provides medications and major medical interventions, a food program, homecare, and home-related assistance.
