A lot of men have had the title of world’s oldest living man. What’s so special? Well, it’s not his age that makes Israel Kristal special, it’s his ability to survive.

Born in Poland in 1903, Mr. Kristal was at the heart of World War I. At the age of 11 he got seprated from his parents due to the war and had to grow up all by himself. Then he moved to Lodz in Poland, married his first wife Chaja Feige Frucht, had two children and  was running a confectionery business. But then World War II happened. Germany invaded Poland and being a Jew, Mr. Kristal had to witness the ‘Holocaust’ as he was sent to Auschwitz, perhaps the most notorious Nazi concentration camp.
