After the German invasion of Hungary on 19.3.1944, Moshe equipped himself with Aryan documents under the name of Horák Pál. He himself forged documents. Moshe went to Miskolc in order to distribute documents among the Jews there. He returned to Budapest where he also distributed forged documents. He transferred grenades, ammunition, information and documents. He was active in “Department A”, the children’s department, on Wekerle Street under the auspices of the International Red Cross. He delivered food to the children’s houses in a truck and gathered Jewish orphans mainly from the ghetto.
Part of the time he operated while wearing the uniform of the Arrow Cross Party. During one of his missions he was caught but managed to escape in a cunning way.
After the liberation he obtained food for orphaned Jewish children. In Israel he owned an office for the planning of electricity works.
