  • Higher Risk of Suicide among Israelis Who Immigrated during the Second World War from Countries Where Most Jews Were Murdered in the Holocaust

    תמונה תומכת תוכןA new study held at the University among Holocaust survivors has revealed a specific population group with a high suicide rate. The study found that people who immigrated to Israel from countries where most of the Jewish population was murdered in the Holocaust, such as Germany, Austria, Poland, and Greece, show the highest suicide rates. “People who immigrated to Israel during the Holocaust may have expected a safe refuge, but found themselves facing persecution once again during the period before independence. This situation may have contributed to the higher risk of suicide among this group,” commented Dr. Cendrine Bursztein Lipsicas, one of the authors of the study.
