Holocaust Survivor Eva Kor to present for MUSG Speaker Series

Marquette University Student Government is excited to continue its 2014-15 Speaker Series with Holocaust survivor Eva Kor. Kor will speak in AMU 227 on Thursday, Nov. 6 at 6 p.m.

Eva Kor is best regarded for the creation of CANDLES, which stands for Children of Auschwitz Deadly Nazi Lab Experiments Survivors. Eva, along with her sister Miriam, were just one of the 1,500 sets of twins to be subjected to genetic experimentation in Auschwitz. The CANDLES program was created not only to locate other survivors but also to shed light on the dark chapter that is the Holocaust.

During her presentation, Kor will speak about her experience as a medical experiment as well as the inception and execution of CANDLES. In addition, she will talk about her journey to forgiving the individuals involved in the Holocaust that killed members of her family along with millions of Jews.

All Marquette students are invited to attend this MUSG Speaker Series presentation.
