Moscovich had a sheltered, middle class childhood. Hungary occupied Vojvodina. Soon after, at the age of 17, Moscovich was taken to the concentration camp at Auschwitz with his grandfather, grandmother and mother. On March 22, Hildesheim was bombed killing or wounding both prisoners and German guards.

After Ivan Moscovich was liberated from the Bergen-Belsen Nazi death camp 75 years ago, he found his escape in "becoming a workaholic and choosing to be creative. It was our honor to honor Ivan. After surviving Auschwitz and two other concentration camps, plus two forced labor camps, Moscovich invented games, including many milestones in puzzles and recreational mathematics.
He has written over 50 puzzle books tackling mathematical problems. It then moves on to his studies in technical school and his innovation of a rail-welding project.
After immigrating to Israel, he was tasked with creating scientific educational curricula. Moscovich found a way to combine his passions for science and art when he saw a toy called a harmonograph at the Toronto Science Museum and designed a larger version.
Since , he has created hundreds of unique "harmonograms" and became known as the first cybernetic artist, with successful exhibitions in Los Angeles, Mexico, Switzerland, London, and more. He recalled the obituary of Holocaust survivor Primo Levi, who took his own life, which said that Levi had died in Auschwitz 40 years before. Now 94 years old, he continues to "take revenge on the Nazi murderers through a long period of achievement and creativity" with new games, books, and art while spending time with his wife Anitta, daughter Hila and granddaughter Emilia.
