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.
