A 96-year-old Holocaust survivor, Borys Romanchenko, was killed Friday by a Russian strike on the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv.
Romanchenko’s death was confirmed by the Buchenwald concentration camp memorial institute in a series of tweets.
Romanchenko survived the camps at Buchenwald, Peenemünde, Dora and Bergen-Belsen during World War II, the memorial said, adding that it was “stunned” by news of his death.
It said Romanchenko worked “intensively on the memory of Nazi crimes and was vice-president of the Buchenwald-Dora International Committee.”
The story is reminiscent of the man who survived the killing fields of Cambodia but could not survive the streets of Los Angeles.
Make Putin pay.
