Baby Moshe, the 26/11 Israeli survivor is 'emotional' about Mumbai 'homecoming'

"His visit with Israeli Prime Minister will be to unveil our Living Memorial project to commemorate and remember all the names of all the victims of the 26/11 attack", Kozlovsky told the media.

Baby Moshe lost his father Rabbi Gavriel and mother Rivka, who was five months pregnant at the time, during the terror attack on Nariman House, also known as Chabad House.

His parents were killed by militants while he was miraculously rescued by his nanny Sandra Samuel. Moshe had been scheduled to visit India when he turned 13 years old, but Narendra Modi sent him a personal invite during his tour to Israel last year.

"Netanyahu arrived in New Delhi for a six-day visit Sunday and will travel to Mumbai on Thursday where he will visit the Chabad Center where Holtzberg's parents, Rabbi Gavriel Noach Holtzberg and his wife Rivkah HY" D, were gunned down as 10 Muslim terrorists rampaged through Mumbai in a three-day siege.

Nine years after that terrible incident, Moshe Holtzberg has come to India with his grandfather on Tuesday morning.

After the attack, the two-year-old was taken to Israel, where he lived with his maternal grandparents Shimon and Yehudit Rosenberg. "Mumbai is a lot safer now", said Rabbi Holztberg Nachman, Grandfather of Moshe Holtzberg.

Moshe Holtzberg was one-year-old when his parents, who ran the Chabad House in Mumbai, were viciously murdered in the 2008 terror attacks in the city. "Part of it is a special area where parents of Moshe will be remembered", he said. She saved the child during the terror attack.

Samuel has said she found Moshe standing crying over the bodies of his parents and grabbed him before fleeing the house to safety. Moshe has come to India this time and will be present on January 17 with the Israeli PM in Mumbai. "After his arrival, confused at being the centre of attention, Moshe said, shalom (Hebrew for peace), and then uttered in Hindi, Bahut khushi (I'm very happy)". Along with visiting Nariman House, Moshe will be visiting Gateway of India and Hotel Taj Mahal Palace as well.
