A woman by the name of Alice Herz-Sommer, the last known survivor of the Holocaust, has passed on at age 110. In the article, she is quotes with some unusually positive comments about her life while being persecuted during the Nazi occupation.Oldest-known Holocaust survivor dies at 110
So she is not the last, but the oldest. The tagline threw me off for a second because I know that there are thousands of Holocaust survivors still alive.
Ok, you are right – sorry about that. It did briefly seem odd to me since she was an adult during her captivity (which would make it strange for her to outlive all the children in the camps) but I didn't contemplate it enough.
Funny, but just this evening I watched a documentary on one of the Polish holocaust survivors who evidently is still alive (I think the film was made within the last few years). I thought this thread might have been in reference to this same woman until I re-read the article and realized it was not.
The woman in the documentary I saw was moved to at least three different camps. Auschwitz was the second-to-last one she was taken to, and it wasn’t even the worst. I can’t remember the name of the worse one, but it sounded like there were dead bodies laying around and no work to be done. This was just before the end of the war.
