Loyola welcomes Eva Mozes Kor, Holocaust survivor and forgiveness advocate, to share her experiences
Loyola University Maryland welcomes Eva Mozes Kor, Holocaust survivor, forgiveness advocate and founder of CANDLES, to give a lecture on Friday, Oct. 26 at 12:30 p.m. in McGuire Hall.
Kor, a community leader and champion of human rights, is one of the few surviving twins still sharing her personal account of the medical experiments supervised by Nazi doctor Josef Mengele at Auschwitz.
In 1995, Kor opened the CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute, Ind. It is Indiana’s only Holocaust Museum. Her story is documented in the award-winning film Forgiving Dr. Mengele and the book, Surviving the Angel of Death: The True Story of a Mengele Twin in Auschwitz, as well as the German book, Die Macht Des Vergebens (The Power of Forgiveness). Kor is also the subject in a documentary, Eva A-7063.
Kor is one of 13 survivors featured in New Dimensions in Testimony, a new interactive technology created by USC Shoah Foundation to preserve testimonies and continue the dialogue between the Holocaust survivors and learners. Kor is a recipient of the 2017 Sachem award, the highest honor in the state of Indiana.
The lecture is free and open to the public. A book signing will take place following the lecture. Kor’s book will be available for purchase at the event.
