    Biography
    Moshe Magidowitz is son of Rivka and Jakow Magidowitz. He was born in 1922 in Jurbarkas (Jurborg) Lithuania and had two brothers, Reuven and Yosef (Yossel) His parents were cousins. Moshe came to Kovno to study at an ORT vocational school and stayed with his aunt and uncle in Aleksotas. In June 1941 Germany launched a surprise attack on Lithuania, and that August Moshe was confined in the Kovno ghetto. His brother Reuven also successfully escaped.He remained there for two years before escaping to the woods with the partisans in December 1943. After liberation he returned to Kovno, but when he couldn't find any surviving relatives he moved to Vilna. His parents and Yossel all perished in the Holocaust. Moshe later moved to Koenigsberg (Kaliningrad) in East Prussia to serve as an army translator. In 1973 he and his wife Breina, also a survivor from Jurborg, moved to Israel.
