Prof. Mojżesz Schorr (born May 10, 1874 in Przemyśl, died July 8, 1941 in a labor camp in Posty in Uzbekistan ) - Polish-Jewish historian, Talmudic scholar. Besides being a rabbi and academic, Rabbi Schorr was a political activist and senator in the Polish legislature. He was the vice-president of B'nai B'rith and one of the founders of the historiography of Polish Jews before he was arrested by the Soviet NKVD and sent to a labor camp in Uzbekistan as a socially dangerous element. General Władysław Sikorski, the Vatican, and the Polish embassy in the USSR all unsuccessfully sought his release. He died on 8 July 1941 in an unknown location in the area of the labor camp.
