Mietek Pemper,the man who typed Oskar Schindler's list which saved over 1,000 Jews from the Nazis, has died in Germany aged 91.
Pemper will be buried in Augsburg's Jewish cemetery today, when municipal authorities will order flags to be lowered to half-mast in his honour.
He had lived in the southern German town since 1958.
During the Nazi occupation, Pemper was imprisoned at the Plaszow concentration camp, where he was made to work as the personal typist to commandant Amon Geoth, according to ShalomLife.
Pemper connected with German industrialist Schindler, and risked his own life by supplying him with a list of over 1,000 prisoners expecting to be recruited for work that was "decisive for the Nazi effort."
These work schemes prevented their extermination by the Nazi machine.
Augsburg's Mayor, Kurt Gribl, said: "With Mietek Pemper, the city has lost an important builder of bridges between the Jewish and Christian religions and a contributor to reconciliation."
Augsburg awarded Pemper a civic medal in 2003 and made him an honorary citizen in 2007.
May he rest in peace.
