Ben Moche was born in Yas (Iasi), Romania in 1940. Although young, Ben remembers facing several incidents of anti-Semitism like being forced to wear a yellow Jewish star. In 1944, Ben's family left Romania (and all of their possessions) traveling to Hungary. After the war they moved to Austria and then to Germany. In 1947 they settled in the town of Ramle near Tel Aviv. Ben immigrated to America in 1967, settling in Michigan where he married and started a family.
