Dutch Cutbacks on Subsidies for the Elderly Will Hit Holocaust Survivors

The planned reduction of subsidies for the care of the elderly, to take place later on this year, will hit Holocaust survivors particularly hard.  The idea behind the cutbacks is that they will force family members to become more involved and take greater responsibility.  Many holocaust survivors have no family members.  An article in the daily AD mentions that in the small Jewish old age home in the Hague, there are only six such people.
