Pepi Deutsch, one of the world's oldest survivors of the Holocaust at 101, died Friday in Scarsdale, N.Y., while hospitalized for bladder cancer. Mrs. Deutsch, a Hungarian Jew, endured Auschwitz, slave labor and the death of 37 relatives including her husband, her son and her mother. In the 1950s, Mrs. Deutsch, her daughter, her daughter's husband and their son came to the United States.
