World's oldest survivor of Auschwitz dies at 10810/23/2012
Antoni Dobrowolski, the oldest known survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp, has died at the age of 108. When the Nazis invaded Poland in 1939, they swiftly banned any type of education beyond elementary school. Dobrowolski defied those orders, working with underground organizations to teach children about their country's culture and history. For his efforts, he was arrested and sent to Auschwitz, which he described as being "worse than Dante's hell." After the war, he resumed his role as an educator. In 2009, at age 105, he was asked for the secret of his longevity. "There's no recipe for that," he said. "You have to be born with it." The same could be said of courage. [Source]
