Oldest Known Holocaust Survivor Dies

FSWC Reports:


Alice Herz-Sommer, the world's oldest known Holocaust survivor, passed away Sunday morning at the age of 110. Herz-Sommer had been admitted to a hospital in London, where she lived, after feeling unwell Thursday. "She passed away peacefully, with her family by her side," her grandson Ariel told Ynet. 

"Much was written about her, but for those of us who knew her best, she was 'Gigi'. She loved us, laughed with us and cherished music with us," the grandson added. "She was our inspiration and our world will be significantly duller without her in it."
