Holocaust Survivor to Visit HLGU March 28
Hannibal-LaGrange University hosts Holocaust survivor, public speaker and forgiveness advocate Eva Mozes Kor Friday, March 28 at 5:30 p.m. in the Roland Fine Arts Center. Following her remarks, Eva will be in the lobby of the center for a book signing.
Eva and her twin sister were ten years old when their family was loaded into a cattle car along with other Jewish prisoners and taken to the Auschwitz concentration camp. While at Auschwitz, Eva and her sister survived a series of genetic experiments conducted by the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele. The Soviet Army liberated the occupants of the camp in early 1945.
In the mid-90s, Eva Mozes Kos opened the CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute, Indiana. CANDLES stands for Children of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly Lab Experiments Survivors.
Tickets for Ms. Kor's appearance at HLGU are $5 each at the door. Students, faculty and staff get in free.
