Israel Kristal, world’s oldest man, dies E-mail

Holocaust survivor Israel Kristal, who last year was recognised by the Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest man, died in Haifa, Israel, on 11 August, at the age of 113 years and 330 days.

Guinness World Records said Kristal was born in Poland on 15 September 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 11 March, 2016, when he was 112 years and 178 days old.
