The last living Greek Jewish survivor of Auschwitz, Isaac Mizan, has passed away in Athens at the age of 94, according to the World Jewish Congress.
Mizan was born in 1927 in the Jewish community of Arta in northwest Greece. He was the youngest child of Joseph and Anette Mizan.
In March 1944, Mizan, his family and 351 Jews of Arta were arrested and deported to the renowned Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz, and later moved to Bergen-Belsen.
Out of the 12 members of his family sent to Auschwitz, only he and one sister survived, the World Jewish Congress states.
Mizan returned to Arta in 1945 and lived there until 1961. At the age of 35, he moved away to Athens as the last Jew of Arta. The Jewish community in Arta no longer exists.
