UNBELIEVABLE: FROM MIDEAST DISPATCHES: CHILD HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR FINDS HAVEN AS MUSLIM IN ISRAEL

Tom Gross Media, posted here June 1, 2012


Editor's Note: Majeda El Batsh, the Israeli-Arab affairs correspondent of the French news agency Agence France Presse (AFP) reported from the Israeli Arab town of Umm El-Fahm in northern Israel that for more than five decades, Leila Jabarin hid her secret from her Muslim children and grandchildren – that she was a Jewish Holocaust survivor born in the Auschwitz death camp. Her birth name was Helen Leah Brashatsky.

It was only before this year's annual Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) that Jabarin revealed her truth.]
