The Ghetto Fighters' House mourns the death of Yitzhak (Itzik) Katz

Yitzhak used to give testimonies at the Ghetto Fighters' House for more than 20 years.
Whenever he was asked to come and bear witness for a visiting group, he would come from his kibbutz, Ein HaMifratz, out of a sense of duty and mission to recount his story as a child in Budapest during the Holocaust.

In 2005, the Ghetto Fighters' House published his memoir, "The Loss of Innocence", describing his wartime experiences.

Yitzhak was 9 years old when he had to survive the Budapest ghetto all alone in the years 1944-1945.
He immigrated to Israel in 1949, at the age of 14. As a boy he was raised in Kibbutz Ein HaShofet, and since 1959 he was a member of Ein HaMifratz, where he started a family.

He is survived by family and grandchildren.
