Moshe Holtzberg, kid who survived 26/11, returns to Mumbai after 10 years


On Thursday, Moshe would be visiting Chabad House at Colaba on Thursday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Among those who died in the 48-hour siege were Moshe's parents - Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and a pregnant Rivka - who managed the Jewish spiritual centre.

Moshe was accompanied by his grandfather Rabbi Nachman Holtzberg and his wife. Moshe now lives with his grandparents, Rabbi Shimon and Yehudit Rosenberg in Afula.

Nine years after surviving the Mumbai terror attack that took place on November 26 leaving hundreds of dead, Moshe Holtzberg, commonly known as Baby Moshe returned to the city on Tuesday morning.

Also accompanying Moshe will be Sandra Samuels, the Indian nanny who saved him during the terror attack that killed 166 people over three days. "His visit to the Nariman House is emotional and sensitive because this is where he received the last hug from his mother and the last kiss from his father", Kozolovasky said.

Moshe's Mumbai trip comes as a reciprocal visit promised by Israeli PM Netanyahu following Modi's meeting with the family in Israel last July, when he invited Moshe to India.

Natanyahu is on a six day visit to India and has been touring the nation with Narendra Modi.

The Rabbi spoke about the "Live Memorial" that Moshe will unveil on January 18, saying the general public would be welcome inside it once it is completed. "We hope that he would have the best experience during the time he spends here at the house", Kozlovsky said.

While accepting the long-term visa which India issued to Moshe and his grandparents had requested the Indian ambassador that the Nariman House building be registered with the land registry department as belonging to Moshe Holtzberg.

"We are very excited about this programme".

He is likely to visit the Chabad House in Mumbai during the visit.

All victims' names would be engraved in the garden area and there would be a special corner for Moshe's parents.
