HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR TO SPEAK AT JASPER HIGH SCHOOL
Eva Mozes Kor, survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp spoke on September 11 at the newly constructed Jasper High School Gymnasium.
The presentation was free with several members of the public in attendance. The presentation was recorded by JHS Media services, and is currently streaming below.
Kor survived Auschwitz along with her twin sister Miriam. She was one of 180 children liberated from the concentration camp at the end of World War II. Eva and her sister endured unspeakable medical experimentation conducted by the infamous “Angel of Death”, Dr. Josef Mengele.
In 1995 she founded the CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute, Indiana. The museum is dedicated to the twins who survived the horrible Nazi experiments and operates to educate the public on what hatred and prejudice can lead to.
Kor has presented hundreds of lectures offering a compelling life story about the Holocaust and the power of forgiveness.
