Most of the people that moved to the state of Israel when it was reformed. Are they American, general homeless people or displaced Germans/east Europeans?
The reason I ask is many of them lost property of some form during World War Two. Don't the need to have that back so they have a place to go when they move out of Ali's apartment in Jerusalem?
I think you might find that there weren't many German Jewish people around when Israel was founded. There were death camps. Look it up, dude.
Interestingly, about 2/3 of the Jewish people living in pre-war Germany survived the Holocaust (mainly because most of them emigrated before WWII started). I'm guessing most of them no longer considered themselves residents of Germany by the end, but it does make a stark contrast with countries like Hungary, where the survival rate was almost the inverse.
