In 1944, at the age of ten, Eva Mozes, along with her family of Romanian Jews, was taken to Auschwitz. Her parents and two sisters perished there. She and her twin sister Miriam were spared, but only because they were used for experiments by Dr. Josef Mengele, the most notorious of the Nazi doctors. Mozes Kor is also well known for her work on peace and forgiveness; she has personally forgiven the Nazis, even Mengele, for what they did to her during World War II. Eva Kor will discuss surviving Auschwitz and Mengele, the importance of Holocaust education, and the value of forgiveness in reducing hatred and mass violence.
