From 1948 to 1954, thousands of Jewish migrants from Yemen and other parts of the Middle East arrived in the newly formed state of Israel and often resided in refugee camps until more permanent housing could be secured. Due to unhygienic conditions, the Israeli authorities removed thousands of babies and toddlers from the camps, moving them to concrete buildings and medical facilities. Many were never reunited with their families — including Schwartz’s sister.
