Holocaust survivors in Israel have a higher death rate from cancer than contemporaries who moved to Israel before World War II, a new study found. According to a University of Haifa study, the younger a survivor was during the war, the higher the risk that he or she will develop cancer; and cancer survival rates are lower among survivors than among those who didn’t go through the Holocaust.
