The Montgomery County Community Foundation is pleased to bring Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor to Crawfordsville on April 8 to present “From Auschwitz to Forgiveness.” The program will take place at the Crawfordsville High School auditorium at 6:30 p.m.

During her internment at Auschwitz concentration camp, Kor and her twin sister, Miriam, were subjected to genetic experimentation by Nazi doctor Josef Mengele. On the 50th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, she received international attention when she publicly forgave the Nazis for what had been done to her.

In 1984, Kor founded CANDLES Holocaust Museum in Terre Haute. Through the museum and her lectures, she has worked to educate the public about eugenics, the Holocaust, and the power of forgiveness. Powered by a never-give-up attitude, Kor has emerged from a trauma-filled childhood as a brilliant example of the human spirit’s power to overcome. She is a community leader, champion of human rights, and tireless educator.

This program is free and open to the public and seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
