Borys Romanchenko, a 96-year-old Holocaust survivor, was killed Friday in a Russian attack on the Ukrainian city of Kharkov.

Romanchenko’s death was confirmed in a series of tweets by the Buchenwald Concentration Camp Memorial Institute.

Romanchenko survived the camps in Buchenwald, Peenemünde, Dora and Bergen-Belsen during World War II, the memorial said, adding that it was “stunned” by the news of his death.

It said Romanchenko “worked intensively on the memory of Nazi crimes and was vice-chairman of the Buchenwald-Dora International Committee”.

The discovery of Buchenwald, on April 11, 1945, marked the beginning of the liberation of more than 21,000 prisoners from one of the largest Nazi concentration camps of the Second World War.
