 EVA MOZES KOR

Eva Mozes Kor is a survivor of the Holocaust who, with her twin sister Miriam, was subjected to human experimentation under Josef Mengele at Auschwitz. Both of her parents and two older sisters were killed at the camp; only she and Miriam survived.

In 1984, Kor founded the organization CANDLES (an acronym for "Children of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly Lab Experiments Survivors"), through which she located 122 other living Mengele twins, as the experiment survivors came to be known.

Kor founded CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in 1995to educate the public about eugenics, the Holocaust, and the power of forgiveness. Kor received international attention when she publicly forgave
the Nazis for what had been done to her. This story was later explored in the documentary Forgiving Dr. Mengele.
