Israel Kristal, who was only one of his family to survive second world war, was described as ‘very hardworking’ by grandson
Israel Kristal, the world’s oldest man who lived through both world wars and survived the Auschwitz concentration camp has passed away just a month short of his 114th birthday, his family have said.
Oren Kristal, a grandson, said he died on Friday. “He managed to accomplish a lot. Every year he lived was like a few years for somebody else,” Oren told the Associated Press.
