World's oldest man Yisrael Kristal dies aged 113

Israeli Holocaust survivor which was known as the oldest man in the world certified a year ago by Guinness world record, died on Friday at the age of 113.

Kristal's death on Friday came a year after he was recognised by Guinness World Records as the world's oldest living man. His original celebration was delayed owing to World War I, in which both his parents died.

Kristal, who resided in the northern Israeli city of Haifa, was born in on September 15, 1903, in the Polish village of Zarnow.

The son of a religious scholar, Mr Kristal lost his mother and father during World War One, according to reports.

Yisrael Kristal, the world's oldest man, was niftar Friday in Eretz Yisrael at the age of 113.

Kristal was working for his uncle's confectionary business when the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939, marking the beginning of World War II.

His two children died in the ghetto and his first wife was murdered in the Auschwitz gas chambers but Krista never gave up. Kristal, however, managed to survive, performing slave labor.

According to Tablet Mag, he thanked the Soviet soldiers who rescued him by making them candies.

After World War I, he moved to Lodz where he worked in the family confectionery shop, married and had two children.

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

He is survived by two children, as well as grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported. Shula Kupershtuch says: "He always saw only light and good in everything".
