My name is Tova. I emigrated from Iran in 1952. In 1957/8, I was nine-months pregnant and also had five little children. I felt I was just about to give birth. My husband saw that I wasn’t feeling well so he took me to the hospital in Safed. The doctors' names were Mendel and Fishman. I was operated and they told me the baby died. In the morning, a doctor came for inspection and I was sent to another operation. I asked, "Where is my baby? What is going on with my baby?" They said: "you had a son. He died". I asked, “Where is his body?”
After the doctors left, some guy came in and said: “I need to take your photo.” I asked him why. He answered: "What do you care?" He took two photos of me and left. I don’t know who he was. We have not seen the child, neither dead nor alive. All these years I do not know whether the child is alive or dead.

Their daughter, Edna Sinai: I was 10 year old. I was born in 48. I remember seeing mother in pain. Father went with her and we didn’t see her for several months because of the operation she had. It was also hard to be in touch with her. We have not seen a death certificate. I believed that he died. But then I saw Tsufit Grant's [TV] program [about kidnapped children] and this came to my mind. I also saw Rina Matzliach's program, and then I contacted you.
