World’s oldest man, Holocaust survivor, dies by leaving gas on in kitchen in Israel aged 113
JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Holocaust survivor Israel Kristal, who last year was recognized by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest living man, died in Israel on Friday, aged 113, local news media reports said.
Guinness said Kristal was born in Poland on Sept. 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 after his kitchen exploded, Israeli reports said.
Jeanne Calment, a French woman, had the longest confirmed human lifespan, according to Guinness. She died in 1997 at the age of 122.
“Oy Vey, he survived 8 gassings and 10 camps. That horrible gas turned his lungs Prussian blue, but Israel always made time to go on humanitarian trips to help underprivileged boys in Thailand. He loved his philanthropy and his LGBTQP+ Masonic charity. It’s like annuda shoah I tell ya!; please give to this goyfundme campaign to grow
Israeli settlements love”.
