Eva Mozes Kor, survivor of Auschwitz and the experiments of Dr. Joseph Mengele will describe her experience at Auschwitz and her decision to forgive the Nazis and their actions in the Holocaust.
In March 1944 Eva and her family were deported to Auschwitz Concentration Camp. On the selection platform at Auschwitz, Eva and her twin sister Miriam were taken to join other twins who were to become part of Dr. Josef Mengele's medical experiments. As twins, they were seen as natural guinea pigs: one child was used as a control and the other subject to experimentation.
Eva and her twin sister Miriam survived the deadly Nazi experiments and today Eva devotes much of her time to speaking about what happened to her and the others who were experimented on without their consent.
