'Baby Moshe' arrives in Mumbai after 9 years

Mumbai terror attacks 'miracle boy' to visit home for 1st time after 9 yrs

Moshe Holtzberg, a young boy whose parents were killed at a Chabad House in Mumbai during a 2008 terror attack, returned to that city for the first time Tuesday to visit the site of the attack with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. There has been no drastic change on Moshe's personality or his characteristics after the attack, and he seems to be a normal child who survived one of the most harrowing experienced in his infanthood. "We are all very excited to visit India", Rosenberg said from Israel.

He will fly back to Israel with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on January 19.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had met Moshe and his grandparents during a visit to Israel in July past year and had told him that he could visit India anytime.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had met the boy on his visit to Israel in 2017. "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)".

Fed bhindi and rajma as a baby in India, the boy still loves Indian snacks, especially Idlis and Dosas, and chilli in his food.

Moshe's parents, who used to run the Jewish religious centre, had along with the other hostages been tortured by the terrorists before they were indiscriminately shot at, claimed reports. His Indian nanny Sandra Samuel is said to have found him crying beside his parents' bodies, and is reported to have picked him up and fled out of the building under attack.

On Thursday, he will join Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is now on a state visit to India, at a ceremony to unveil a memorial plaque honoring his parents at Mumbai's Chabad center. Along with visiting Nariman House, Moshe will be visiting Gateway of India and Hotel Taj Mahal Palace as well.

"Moshe definitely has a huge emotional bond with India and Mumbai".

"This is the place where he got his last hug from his father and mother", he said.
