After surviving four camps, Marko Feingold lived to tell his Holocaust story to many at conferences or events for schools. He will be remembered for his courage and strength to tell his story, educating younger generations on one of the darkest chapters in history:

The oldest Austrian Holocaust survivor, who lived through four concentration camps, has died at the age of 106, Vienna’s Jewish Community organization (IKG) said Friday.

Despite his advanced age, Feingold had remained active in speaking out about the Holocaust, taking part in numerous conferences and events for schoolchildren.

“I must have spoken to around half a million people all in all,” he told AFP in a 2018 interview, adding he swore to himself in Auschwitz that he would tell his story.
