Alan Moskin Obituary, Death – Alan Moskin, a local hero from Rockland County, had passed away, I was overcome with a great sense of sadness. Alan was a soldier who served during World War II and took part in the operation to free detainees from the Gunskirchen concentration camp. During his time in the military, he was awarded the Purple Heart. The Purple Heart was bestowed to him for his service in the military at some point.
This camp was used by the Nazi government to incarcerate Jewish captives hailing from Hungary for the duration of that regime’s occupation of that country. He committed a substantial amount of his time to educating young people in Rockland about the atrocities he had seen with his own eyes in the hope that it could prevent future occurrences and ensure that anything similar would never happen again. He did this in the hope that it may prevent future incidents and ensure that nothing like that would ever happen again.
He acted in this manner in the hope that it would prevent anything even somewhat comparable from occurring in the future. The New York State Senate made it feasible for him to be inducted into the Veterans Hall of Fame in 2014, and the ceremony itself was named after him. His induction was completely deserved on his part. I pray that the Lord would continue to shower his blessings on the remembrance of him in everything that you do.
