Yes friends, people still don't believe that there were kidnappings of children in the Aliyahs [immigrations] of the 50s. The boy on my mother's knees in the photo seems to you very sick, and my mother was told that he had died and that they had buried him. Yes, they did traffic in children. And my mother who,like you, also believed in the integrity of the immigrant-absorption system, believed that the child had died. Yes, life went on, and my mother and I arrived at the Oshiyot ma'abara (Transit Camp) in Shaaraim... Those of you asking why I wasn't taken, LOL - because the establishment's plan was to disappear children from the nurseries. Yes friends, this is tiny Eliezer, with the Tembel hat and his thumb in his mouth, who will soon celebrate 68 years along with the state of Israel.
"Rachel Adelstein is today a 73-years-old woman, and a mother to four, but the years couldn't erase the sorrow and loss. "All these years I've lived with the feeling that my child may be alive somewhere, I always walked in the streets and searched for him .. I consume myself with regret that I didn't raise my voice and make a scene, but who would've thought that in Israel they did things like this. I know that all the time they’re trying to deny this whole affair, but it's clear to me that the Yemenite children were kidnapped, and that my child was kidnapped. To this day I cry over what was done to me, and I live with the sense that one day he will appear at my doorstep and say: ‘hello, I'm looking for my mother.’ "
