World's oldest man and Auschwitz survivor, Yisrael Kristal, dies aged 113

Yisrael Kristal was recognised as the world's oldest man by Guiness World Records in March 2016 Shula Kopershtouk

Guinness World Records awarded Kristal a certificate as the world's oldest man previous year. Kristal is survived by two children, multiple grandchildren and great grandchildren, according to Guinness.

Born Sept. 15, 1903, near Zarnow, Poland, in what was then a part of the Russian Empire, he worked in a candy factory between the wars, and became a skilled confectioner.

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

After the war ended Kristal married another Holocaust survivor and moved with her to Israel in 1950 where he built a new family and opened his own successful confectionary business. There, he opened another sweet shop and continued to run the business up until his retirement.

Mr Kristal, who lived in Haifa, Israel, hit the headlines a year ago after deciding to celebrate his bar mitzvah a century late. Yisrael Krista died when he was just one month shy of his 114th birthday.

JERUSALEM | The Holocaust survivor Yisrael Kristal, identified by the Guinness world records as the man with the world's oldest, died Friday at the age of 113 years, reported israeli media. When it was discovered that he had never celebrated his bar mitzvah, it happened 100 years late.

Kristal's daughter, Shula Kopershtouk, told CBC News at the time: "My father told my son not to take his bar mitzvah for granted, saying that not everyone was lucky enough to have one".

"I don't know the secret for long life", he told the Guinness World Record.
