For Holocaust Remembrance Month, EVPL North Park will be showing Eva: A-7063, a documentary on survivor/activist Eva Mozes Kor, on April 4, 2020, at North Park Library. CYPRESS will be leading a discussion following the film.
Taken from her home at the age of five, Eva and her twin sister were their family’s only survivors, and only then kept alive for the experiments of Auschwitz’ “Angel of Death,” Josepf Mengele. Years after the liberation of Auschwitz, Eva Mozes married a man named Michael Kor and settled down across the world in Terre Haute, Indiana. She contacted former survivors and founded a group named CANDLES, building a museum in Terre Haute, campaigning in Washington DC, and returning once a year to Auschwitz. Although not without controversy, Eva’s message of hope, courage, and forgiveness touched thousands of lives she encountered. We are honoring Mrs. Kor and her work with a discussion about the film and her life after the screening, facilitated by members of CYPRESS.
