World's oldest man, Auschwitz survivor Yisrael Kristal dies

Viral       by Mian Yousaf Zulfiqar | Published

The sole survivor from his family, Mr Kristal emigrated to Israel in 1950 with his second wife and their son, where he continued to run his confectionery business until his retirement. Kristal was unable to celebrate his Bar Mitzvah in 1916 because his mother had died three months earlier and his father was a soldier in the Russian army at the time of World War I.

The world's oldest man, Israel Kristal, has died aged 113 in the northern port city of Haifa in Israel.

The world's oldest man, a Holocaust survivor who was set to turn 114 next month, died Friday in Israel.

Kristal was born to an Orthodox Jewish family near the town of Zarnow in Poland.

Kristal claimed his title as the oldest living man at the age of 112 years and 178 days last year, and was given a certificate at his home.

He remarried and has been survived by two children, nine grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren, reports news site Ynet.

His wife and two children were killed in the camp but Kristal survived, weighing just 37 kilos at the end of the war.

"My father is religious and has prayed every morning for 100 years, but he has never had his bar mitzvah", his daughter Shula Koperstoch told the AFP news agency last year.

Oren Kristal said his grandfather gave no explanation as to the secret behind his incredible longevity. "There have been smarter, stronger and better-looking men than me who are no longer alive".

Jeanne Calment, a French woman, had the longest confirmed human lifespan, according to Guiness.
