Calendar   Workshops
Location Zoom
Date Thu, Dec 2, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Duration   1h

Teaching the Human Story is a core principle of pedagogy for Echoes & Reflections. Students and their teachers are invited to join Echoes & Reflections as they examine the life of Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor in partnership with the organization she founded, CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center of Terre Haute, IN.

Eva Mozes Kor’s story highlights the agency of the many players in her life. From her childhood in Romania to the medical laboratory of Auschwitz where Eva and her twin sister Miriam suffered under Dr. Mengele, her story is one of choices made by herself, family, neighbors, countries, and others who had an impact on her life. As an adult, Eva became a lightning rod of advocacy for survivors and was heavily criticized for her stance on forgiveness, specifically her forgiveness of Nazi perpetrators.
