In 1955, 1959 and 1962, Moses requested restitution for his stolen property and bank accounts from the German government. He had to document all his lost assets. No restitution was received. Even though they had to abandon their wealth in Germany, and could not reunite with their United States family, the Ginsberg family were lucky. They escaped Nazi Germany together before the worst years of the war.
