My parents, Ramsiya and Yehezkel Rahamim, emigrated from Iraq in 1951, then met at the Pardes Katz Transit Camp, got married and moved to Petah Tikva. The first birth was around 1953 and the second in 1954. It was girls both times and in both cases my mother was told the babies had died, while neither a body nor a death certificate were produced. Nothing. Following the two girls a brother was born around 1955, and he actually died. When I was born, in 1956, it was at the hospital in Kfar Saba.
Because my mother spoke about it all her life, we know she gave birth in 1953 alongside another relative, and we have the exact birth date of the first birth: May 29, 1953.
It was girls both times and in both cases my mother was told the babies had died, while neither a body nor a death certificate were produced.
Both births were of girls, and after both of them my mother was informed the newborns had died—she was not shown a body or provided a death certificate.
