Dozens of Holocaust survivors have led a rally outside Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's office in Jerusalem to demand more state support.
Hundreds of young and old people joined the protest against the government's "insulting" offer of a $20 (£10) monthly stipend.
Treblinka death camp survivor Yosef Charnyi, 82, sparked controversy by wearing the clothes of a concentration camp inmate.
Others held up the yellow Star of David reading "Jude" - or Jew in German - by which Jews were marked out by the Nazis.
This Holocaust survivor adjusts his cap, which has a sticker reading in Hebrew: "Holocaust and Shame".
Six million Jews were killed by the Nazis during World War II. Six decades later, about 240,000 survivors live in Israel.
One of the survivors, Julius Braun listens to a speaker during the protest. The survivors say they can barely afford medical treatment and, in some cases, even food.
