LONDON (AP) - Alice Herz-Sommer, who was believed to be the oldest-known survivor of the Holocaust, died in London on Sunday at the age of 110, a family member said.

A film about her life has been nominated for best short documentary at next month's Academy Awards.

Herz-Sommer died in a hospital Sunday morning after being admitted Friday, daughter-in-law Genevieve Sommer said.

CNN reports that Herz-Sommer was originally from Prague and was imprisoned at the Theresienstadt Concentration camp during World War II. As a talented musician and pianist, music saved her life. She and others performed concerts for the Nazis.
