Baby Moshe on Tuesday arrived in India first time after the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack where his parents were killed. Moshe Holtzberg will be participating in the inauguration of a special memorial in memory of his parents and victims of Mumbai 26/11 attacks. Moshe was only two when terrorists killed his parents at Mumbai's Jewish house.
Earlier, Republic had accessed a photograph of ‘Baby Moshe’ during his journey to New Delhi from Tel Aviv along with his grandparents. Baby Moshe, now 11 years old, would be accompanied to the event by Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu and PM Narendra Modi.
Also accompanying Moshe will be Sandra Samuels, the brave Indian nanny who saved him during the terror attack. Samuels, who was awarded an honorary citizenship by the Israeli government so that she could live in the country and be with Moshe, continues to share a unique bonding with the little boy. Moshe's grandfather Shimon Rosenberg on Monday said he and his wife will accompany their grandson when he lands in Mumbai on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Moshe and his grandparents during a visit to Israel in July last year and told him that he could visit India anytime. While accepting the long-term visa which India issued to Moshe and his grandparents, Rosenberg had requested the Indian ambassador that the Nariman House building be registered with the land registry department as belonging to Moshe Holtzberg.
Earlier on Sunday, PM Modi received his Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu at the airport in Delhi. The Israeli premier, who is on a six-day visit to India, is accompanied by his wife Sara and a 130-member delegation from various sectors, including cyber, agriculture and defence.
