Holocaust survivor Yisrael Kristal has died a month before his 114th birthday


Holocaust survivor Yisrael Kristal, who last year was recognised by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest living man, has died in Israel, aged 113.

Kristal was born in Poland on September 15, 1903, and survived the Auschwitz death camp, where his first wife, two children and other family members were killed by the Nazis.

He married again after the war and moved to Israel in 1950.

Kristal was awarded a Guinness certificate as the world’s oldest man on March 11, 2016, when he was 112 years and 178 days old.

He died on Friday in the northern port city of Haifa aged 113 years and 330 days, according to Israeli reports.
