Mumbai: Nine years after the 26/11 attacks rocked Mumbai, Moshe Holtzberg, better known as Baby Moshe, returned to the city on Tuesday and visited south Mumbai’s Chabad House where 10 Pakistani terrorists had killed his parents, Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and Rivka Holtzberg.
The Jewish couple ran a cultural and outreach centre for the Chabad-Lubavitch movement at the house.
Special arrangements were made for the 11-year-old at the Chabad House, formerly known as Nariman House, where a memorial, honouring the victims is created. 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).”
The boy was accompanied by his grandfather, Shimon Rosenberg and his Indian nanny, Sandra Samuel, who had rescued him during the attack.
Expressing joy, Rabbi Kozlovsky, who runs Chabad house, said, “Finally, Baby Moshe is at home.”
