I’ve seen Kor speak once before and her amazing story of forgiveness is incredible. She will talk about her life and family and how they were taken prisoners by the German Nazis. She and her twin sister Miriam were subjected to human experimentation under Josef Mengele and both of them somehow survived.
The rest of their family perished during the Holocaust, but the two sisters were liberated from Auschwitz death camp in 1945. Since then she has publicly forgiven her Nazi captors and founded CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in an effort to educate people about eugenics and the events of the Holocaust.
If you’re looking for a touching and educational community event to attend during your trip to Branson, I highly recommend taking the time to listen to Eva Kor’s story. It’s a story that will both haunt and change you forever.
