Yisrael Kristal, world’s oldest man and the only member of his immediate family to survive the Holocaust has died at the age of 113.
The Polish-born son of a religious scholar died on Friday, August 11, 2017 just one month before he was due to turn 114.
Mr Kristal was officially recognised as the world’s oldest man by the Guinness Book of Records in March 2016.
Speaking at the time, he admitted he did not know the secret to a long life, saying: “There have been smarter, stronger and better looking men than me who are no longer alive.”
He is survived by two children, as well as grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
