Thousands of Jews emigrate to Israel each year - despite the country's high cost of living, and its precarious political situation. German national Sarah Fantl, who lost many relatives in the Holocaust, decided to move there as well.
In 2015, Sarah Fantl visited Auschwitz, where she discovered her great-grandmother's suitcase. This triggered her decision to start a new life and to make Aliyah. She emigrated to Israel at the end of 2017 after quitting her job as a journalist. She moved into an apartment in Jerusalem and started learning Hebrew. Now, she's writing a book about her family's history. My great-grandmother's suitcase Sarah emigrates to Israel A special report by Tania Krämer and Miriam Dagan
