Eva Moses Kor, Interview I

Eva Mozes Kor is a Holocaust survivor and the founder of CANDLES (Children of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly Lab Experiments Survivors). She also created the CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center. She has worked with Indiana state legislators Clyde Kersey and Tim Skinner to gain passage of a law requiring Holocaust education in secondary schools.

In May of 1944, the Mozes family, including ten-year-old identical twins Miriam and Eva Mozes, were loaded onto cattle cars. They were ultimately relocated from their home in Portz in Transylvania, Romania to the Auschwitz death camp. An SS trooper hurried by, shouting, “Zwillinge! Zwillinge!” (Twins! Twins!). Miriam and Eva became part of Josef Mengele’s 1500 sets of twin, subjects for experiments.
