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."
