    George Sossenko died the day before yesterday on March 14, 2013. George Sossenko went to Nestor Makhno's funeral and met Alexander Berkman increasing his interest in anarchism. When he was 16, Sossenko ran away from home to fight fascism. At first he went to the office of the French Communist Party, but they turned him down due to his age, then he contacted the socialists and was denied to his age as well. They suggested he contact the anarchists, who thought he was old enough all ready to fight and sent him across the border in a caravan to Spain. During the Civil War, Sossenko changed his name to Georges Jorat to avoid being found by his parents, and fought as part of the Sébastien Faure Century. After the Spanish Civil War, Sossenko fought in World War 2 with the Free French. Later on in his life Sossenko went to work for Michelin Tire as a mechanical engineer. He started off working in Texas but was transferred to Atlanta, Georgia. In 1984, Sossenko sued Michelin after they threatened Sossenko with his job. Sossenko lived in Goergia with his wife Bernice for the remainder of his life. in Atlanta, Sossenko worked with groups like the US Social Forum, Veterans for Peace and the Capital Terminus Collective.

    He was reportedly the last member of the anarchist Durruti column alive.
