Kristal, who was recognized as the world's oldest man by the Guinness Book of World Records, did not get to celebrate his bar mitzvah at the age of 13 in his native Poland due to World War I. He received media attention from around the world when he chose to celebrate it a year ago when he turned 113.
Kristal moved to a ghetto with his wife and two children, who died there. He is survived by two of those children, and many more grandkids and great-grandchildren.
