Holocaust Survivor Eva Kor at Harding

Eva Kor

The University’s American Studies Institute will host Holocaust survivor and forgiveness advocate Eva Kor for the second presentation of its Distinguished Lecture Series at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 7 in Benson Auditorium.

Kor is one of the survivors of the medical experiments on twins supervised by Nazi doctor Josef Mengele at Auschwitz. Her account of surviving the Holocaust offers many relevant lessons on the dangers of hate and prejudice and the consequences of allowing prejudice to persist in others.

In addition to her account of the Holocaust, Kor’s life lessons and message of forgiveness continue to touch the lives of millions. Kor recounts how, in 1995, she chose to forgive the Nazis, deciding that they would no longer have power over her life. She describes the choice as an act of self-healing, self-liberation and self-empowerment.    MORE
