Trip to Terre Haute to Meet Eva Kor
When?: Saturday, December 1st, 2018 – 10:00am to 5:00pm
Where?: Meet at the Canterbury House
Eva Mozes Kor is a survivor of the Holocaust and more specifically a survivor of the horrific experimentation in the research of human eugenics at the hand of Dr. Josef Mengele at Auschwitz. She established the CANDLES (“Children of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly Lab Experiments Survivors”) Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute, Indiana. Eva travels around the world to educate people about the atrocities of Nazi experimentation on identical twin children, as well as the power to heal one’s own wounds through forgiveness. She does this by simply telling her life story – growing up in Transylvania, being taken to Auschwitz at age ten, nearly dying by the hand of Mengele, escaping to Israel, her military carrier, marriage, raising a family in Terre Haute, the death of her twin sister, and eventually on to forgiveness and healing.
On Saturday, December 1, members of the Canterbury fellowship will carpool to Terre Haute, have lunch and then visit the CANDLES museum to hear Eva’s remarkable story of survival. We will leave Canterbury House at 10:00 a.m. and return by 5:00 p.m. The ministry will cover the admission fee to the museum. Individuals will be responsible for the cost of their lunch and any books or materials purchased at the museum bookstore.
Please contact Jody Hays (email@example.com) with any questions or to reserve a seat in the carpool.
