Moshe Turns Two Today

VIDEO Footage of Mumbai victim with son

The BBC has obtained footage of one of the victims who was killed after gunmen stormed the Jewish centre in Mumbai.

Rabbi Holtzberg is seen with his young son Moshe, who was rescued from the building. Mark Sanders reports.

The above video was filmed a few weeks before Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife Rivka lost their lives.

Moshe has been orphaned as his parents Rabbi Holtzberg and wife Rivka were murdered by pious Muslims because they were Jews.

The Rabbi had managed to cover his dead wife with a tallit before he was shot. Then he and his fellow rabbis were found dead, clutching Torah books. Evidence indicates they had probably been killed early on in the episode and not during the commando attack.
