SIMHONA MOVIE POSTER

SIMHONA

In 1954, baby Simhona’s parents, new immigrants from Iran who were living in a refugee tent city, were told that their daughter was ill and needed to be hospitalized. She was taken away from them by a “nurse”, and they never saw the nurse or the baby again. Days later, they were informed of Simhona’s death, though no body was returned to them. Simhona’s mother, now in her 90s, never recovered emotionally from the loss of the baby.

Recently, following the opening of the Israeli archives concerning the abduction of Yemenite immigrant children in the 1950’s, Eli (77), Simhona’s older brother, decided to begin the search for Simhona with the help of his filmmaker daughter.
