Eva Kor, Holocaust Survivor, on Access Utah Monday

Eva Kor is a Holocaust survivor and victim of Dr. Josef Mengele’s medical experiments on twins at Auschwitz. Mengele was given the name “Angel of Death,” because of his position as a SS physician in charge of selecting which new prisoners of the camp would be killed or selected for forced labor. Kor and her sister launched a search for other twins who survived Mengele’s experiments and located 122 individual survivors. She founded C.A.N.D.L.E.S. Holocaust museum in Indiana.

Edited radio interview as broadcasted on April 8.

In 1995, she made headlines for issuing a personal “Declaration of Amnesty” to those individuals responsible for the Holocaust.  Her act of forgiveness inspired some and angered others. Eva Kor will give a talk on forgiveness titled “Encountering Dr. Mengele” on April 11 at Utah State University (6:30 p.m. Old Main 225) as a part of a symposium series on the Holocaust presented by the USU Religious Studies Program. She joins Tom Williams for the hour on Monday’s Access Utah.
