Kor and her twin sister, Miriam, endured medical experiments at Auschwitz, a Nazi death camp, during World War II. Both of her parents and two older sisters were killed at the camp; only Eva and Miriam survived.
Decades later, she forgave Nazi doctors Joseph Mengele and Hans Munch and founded CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center. CANDLES is an acronym for Children of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly Lab Experiments Survivors.
Today, Eva Kor travels the world spreading her message about the life changing power of forgiveness, as much for the person who forgives as the one who is forgiven.
