The world’s oldest known Holocaust survivor has died aged 110 in London.
Alice Herz-Sommer, who was originally from Prague, had been confined in the camp in Terezin, or Theresienstadt, in Germany during the second world war. She was a talented musician and an adept pianist.
Herz-Sommer was born in Prague in 1903. She and her son Raphael were freed from Nazi captivity in 1945 when the Soviet Red Army liberated their camp, and emigrated to Israel before settling in Britain.
