Israël. Décès de l'homme le plus vieux du monde

Yisrael Kristal avait donc réuni l'année dernière, une centaine de membres de la famille pour souffler ses 113 bougies. Cet Israélien était un survivant de l'Holocauste.

Yisrael Kristal voit le jour le 15 septembre 1903 à Zarnow, en Pologne actuelle alors sous domination russe.

Yisrael Kristal a vécu en Pologne jusqu'à l'invasion nazie en 1939. Quatre ans plus tard, il est envoyé au camp de concentration d'Auschwitz. Il avait perdu sa femme et deux de ses enfants dans l'Holocauste.

Il ne pesait plus que 37 kg, selon le Guinness des records, quand les Alliés ont libéré les camps.

En compagnie de sa deuxième femme et de leur fils, il s'installera à Haïfa, au nord de l'Etat hébreu, en 1950, où il coulera des jours prospères à la tête d'une entreprise de confiserie. La bar mitsva est une cérémonie au cours de laquelle les adolescents sont reconnus comme ayant atteint l'âge de la maturité religieuse et peut-être comparée à la confirmation chez les catholiques.

Yisrael Kristal n'avait pas pu célébrer la sienne en 1916, en pleine Première guerre mondiale, car sa mère était décédée trois ans plus tôt et son père était soldat dans l'armée russe. Ce rang honorifique revient en effet à Violet Brown, une Jamaïcaine née le 10 mars 1900, selon le Geronotology Research Group.
