26/11: Baby Moshe’s nanny to be honoured
Jerusalem: Sandra Samuel, the brave Indian
nanny who became famous for showing exemplary courage in
saving the life of a toddler risking her own during the 26/11
terror attacks on Nariman House in Mumbai, would be honoured
by the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation.
The public recognition of Samuel`s brave act will be
made at the Ceremony of Remembrance of the Day of the
Holocaust and Heroism as Israel prepares for Independence Day
celebrations next week.
The Indian nanny captured worldwide attention as she
barged into the Chabad house, amid shooting by terrorists all
around her, and rescued two-year-old Moshe Holtzberg from the
clutches of death.
She has been living with Moshe and his grandparents in
Israel since then, and was conferred a honourary citizenship
by Israel last year.
Moshe, who lost his parents Gavriel and Rivka
Holtzberg in the Mumbai terror attack, has been chosen to
light one of the torches, along with his grandparents, at the
official ceremony of the Day of Independence of Israel next
