Moshe was born on October 10,1923 in Alexandria to his father Yoseph and his mother Rachel. He had two sisters. His father, fifth generation in Egypt, descended from an Austrian family who’d immigrated due to persecution. A religious non-Zionist Jew, he was an expert in Islamic studies and Arabic language having extensive relations with Muslim Clerks and Egyptian Intelligentsia. Moshe studied at the Jewish school’s Commerce Dept. He was a member of a Zionist youth group. The household, traditional Jewish, had no Zionist leaning. During World War II, Moshe’s views underwent change regarding events unfolding in the world and the Middle East. His turning point occurred following the Cairo assassination of Lord Moyne, by Eliyahu Chakim and Eliyahu Beit-Zuri, Lehi members from Israel, who were caught and tried. Their impressive astute poise in court, plus the positive public attitude toward them in Egypt generated by their action, awakened his will to join their battle. He managed to connect with emissaries from Israel and join Lehi. He was tasked to recruit other members to the movement but soon discovered this wasn’t easy; the Hagana exercised strong influence upon the youth, demanded no risk-taking and promised to bring them to Israel, where they could live in peace. Moshe took a different mission upon himself: obtaining weapons and ammunition. Between 1945-46, with WWII’s ending, it was possible to acquire surplus weapons from the fighting armies, including from Bedouins. In September 1946, during an attempt to procure weapons, Moshe was arrested and sentenced to five years prison. With his release, he left Egypt under a false identity and reached Israel via France, where his sister Daisy – a fellow Lehi member – was waiting for him. In 1951 he married Esther Marziano, daughter of Flora and Nissim, who were originally from Crete. She too exited Egypt with false papers and arrived straight to Israel. He began working in his profession, accountant, initially at ‘Incoda’, in Djibouti, later at ‘Solel-Boneh’ in Nigeria, Turkey, Bangkok, and Persia. The Egion couple had two daughters, a son, and seven grandchildren. Moshe passed away on April 28, 1992. He was buried in Tzur- Shalom.
