Survivor Ed Mosberg Donates Torah Scroll

Holocaust survivor Edward Mosberg believes it is his duty to share what happened to him, his family, and millions of other Jews during World War II. He regularly shares his story with students all over the world.

Mosberg visited the office of USC Shoah Foundation this week not only to learn about the Institute’s work, but also to share his story. Wearing the blue-striped concentration camp uniform of his youth, Mosberg spoke to a group of history students and attended a private screening of the film “Destination Unknown,” produced in association with the Institute. The documentary tells his and the stories of other Holocaust survivors and how each one found different ways to overcome the deep scars that they carry.

An avid philanthropist, the 92-year-old Mosberg was joined by Stephen Smith as he stopped by the office of USC Shoah Foundation founder Steven Spielberg on Friday to donate to Spielberg’s temple a two-hundred-year old Torah that was rescued by righteous gentiles in Poland.
