There was however, one miraculous survivor amount these Jews who laid down their lives. It was 2 year old Baby Moshe, he had lost both his parents, but managed to survive. He was later rescued from the site. His grandparents then decided to take him back to Israel and take care him as he grew up.
During his visit to Israel, Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not forget to visit Moshe, who is now 11 years old. The emotional meeting touched the hearts of millions of Indians, in the eyes of whom the suffering of Moshe and several others like him remain afresh.
