MORRIS KORNBERG "Moishe"  (Age 95 )  
Of Waldorf, MD, passed away January 15, 2013 at the age of 95. Moishe was the youngest of six children born on January 6, 1918 to a religious Jewish family in Przedborz, Poland. Aside from his brother, Arie, who immigrated to Palestine in 1933, the remainder of his family was sent to Treblinka, where they met the same fate as the other six million Jews who perished during the Holocaust. Moishe was deported to Auschwitz in 1941 where he slaved for four years in a coal mine. He was on two death marches between concentration camps before being liberated in Theresienstadt on May 3, 1945. In pursuit of a peaceful and quiet life, Moishe immigrated to the US in 1949 and ultimately settled in Waldorf, MD with his beloved wife, Herta. Moishe understood the importance of sharing his life story so that history would never repeat itself, and frequently spoke to children and teens at schools across the country. Moishe survived his wife of 58 years, who believed in her "Mietek" and cared for him deeply. Moishe will be missed dearly by his family and all who knew him. A memorial service will be held at Raymond Funeral Service, P.A., 5635 Washington Ave., La Plata, MD at 11 a.m. on Sunday, January 20. Funeral will follow at 1:30 p.m. at King David Cemetery in Falls Church, VA. Contributions may be made to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, 100 Rauol Wallenberg Pl., SW, Washington, DC 20024-2126.

Morris, your life changed my life for the better. Thank you.

All that you stood for, and accomplished in your incredible life, will be remembered by so many.

You had a unique way of touching others, and for that, you will be greatly missed.

As we agreed, and discussed so many times over the past years, the story of our two families, and how we met, was truly incredible, a miracle, and a real stroke of fate.

We were looking forward to seeing you in two weeks, but instead, we will substitute this with our very fond memories of our times together.

Bless you.....our wonderful friend!!
