Ukraine war: Holocaust survivor killed by Russian shelling in Kharkiv
Boris Romantschenko was killed in Kharkiv 77 years after surviving the Buchenwald concentration camp.
"A Ukrainian man who survived the Nazi Holocaust during World War Two has been killed during a Russian attack on the eastern city of Kharkiv.
Boris Romantschenko, 96, died during Russian shelling of his apartment block on Friday, relatives said.
Russian forces have been relentlessly shelling Kharkiv, which lies just 30 miles (50km) from the border, for over three weeks.
At least 500 civilians have now been killed there, Ukrainian officials say."
Imagine surviving the Holocaust, rebuilding your life only in your final years to eventually be killed by another power hungry murderous dictator.
RIP.....Glad the Russians are killing all these "Nazis" though
