NEW YORK (AP) — The world's oldest Jewish person has died in New York City at age 113.
Evelyn Kozak's granddaughter Brucha (BROO'-kah) Weisberger says she died early Tuesday in a hospital after suffering a heart attack the day before.
Gerontology Research Group senior database administrator Robert Young says Kozak was the world's oldest documented Jewish person and the seventh-oldest person in the world.
Kozak was born in the city on Aug. 14, 1899. Her family had moved from Russia to escape anti-Semitic attacks. She was one of nine children.
Weisberger said Thursday her grandmother had five children, 10 grandchildren and nearly 30 great-grandchildren.
Kozak lived in New York, Perth Amboy, N.J., Miami and Pittsburgh.
