Eva Mozes Kor, Interview II

Eva Mozes Kor, Holocaust survivor, developed the organization CANDLES (Children of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly Lab Experiments Survivors). She also founded the CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center. She has worked with Indiana legislators Clyde Kersey and Tim Skinner to establish a law requiring Holocaust education in secondary schools.

As a child survivor of Mengele’s cruel experiments in Auschwitz, Kor reveals her experience in the camps. Eva made a silent pledge: “I will do whatever is within my power to make sure that Miriam and I shall not end up on that filthy latrine floor.” Despite a variety of cruel and inhuman experiments that nearly killed them both, Eva and her sister did survive and they were liberated together on January 27, 1945.
