World’s Oldest Person: a Holocaust Survivor

Looking for the Blessed Hope

As we approach International Holocaust Remembrance Day (January 27), I want to share a human interest story with you.  Recently the Gerontology Research Group contacted a grandson of 112-year-old Yisrael Kristal, a Holocaust survivor.  This followed the death of a 112-year-old Japanese man, thought to be the oldest living person until his death.

In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, I will be sharing about The Holocaust and Antisemitism at Calvary Community Church (Northwest Campus) tomorrow at 9:00am.  Class will be held in the prayer room.  If you are in the Phoenix area, please come join us for a time of study and prayer.  Click here for directions.
