Moshe's parents - Rabbi Gabriel and Rivka Holtzberg - were killed by terrorists at Chabad House during the attack. Moshe miraculously survived after his maid Sandra Samuel rescued him. Moshe was handed over to his maternal grandparents who rushed to Mumbai even as the attack was unfolding in the city.
Authorities later found bodies of Holtzbergs, Rabbis - Bentzion Chroman and Leibish Teitelbaum, Nora Schwartzblatt-Rabinowitz and Yocheved Orpaz at Chabad House.
The Mumbai attackers killed 164 people and injured over 300, all nine terrorists were killed by India's NSG commandos with one terrorist - Ajmal Kasab taken into custody.
Kasab was later hanged in November, 2012 for his role in the attack on Mumbai.
