And Holocaust Survivor - Dies At 114

Yisrael Kristal, a Holocaust survivor who was recognized as the oldest man in the world by the Guinness World Records, died of an unknown cause in northern Israel on Friday, local media reported. "May his memory be a blessing". Kristal is survived by two children, multiple grandchildren and great grandchildren, according to Guinness.

Born in Poland in 1903, three months before the Wright brothers' first successful flight, Yisrael lived through two world wars before moving to the Israeli city of Haifa and opening a sweet shop. By the time he reached middle age, both world wars had torn apart his family.

There, he worked in the family's confectionery factory, got married and had two children.

After the invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany in 1939, Mr Kristal and his family were moved into the Lodz ghetto.

In September 2016, he had celebrated his Bar Mitzvah, one of the most important ceremonies in judaism, of which he had been deprived of a century earlier. Kristal was deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp, where he was near-death and weighed about 82 pounds by the camp's liberation in 1945.

He immigrated to Israel in 1950 with his second wife and their son, and continued his confectionary business. The Polish native died on Friday just one month before he would have turned 114.
