December 17th, 2017 – In a hostel for the elderly on Smilyansky street in Hadera the Holocaust survivors believe that they are young enough to exercise. So representatives of Helping Hand Coalition for Israel (עמותת יד לעזרה ישראל) looked for a private sports instructor who comes twice a week to do special exercises that are suitable for the elderly.
About 60 survivors come to the spacious room on the ground floor of the hostel for a vigorous workout under the watchful eye of their instructor, Olga. “We don’t want to miss it. Exercise is good for you,” – says one of the survivors with a smile on her face. “Thank you, Helping Hand, for doing this for us!” – says another.
