In the spring of 1944, a young girl was taken away from her family, along with her twin sister. In the months that followed, they - along with 1,500 other sets of twins - were placed on a near-starvation diet and subjected to horrific human experimentation under the guidance of Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, known as the “Angel of Death.” The experimentation lasted for almost a year, and of the 3,000 people who were in that concentration camp in Auschwitz, only an estimated 200 survived.
One of those survivors is Eva Mozes Kor. She now lives in Terre Haute, Indiana, where she is the founding director of the CANDLES Holocaust Museum
. She shared her story with us, and explained why she has chosen to forgive
her Nazi captors.
