EVA KOR
Holocaust Survivor and Forgiveness Advocate

For the past 40 years, Holocaust survivor Eva Kor has shared her story with students, teachers, medical professionals, senators, administrators, historians, university groups, graduating classes, and civic groups, both nationally and internationally. Eva is one of the few surviving twins sharing her personal account of the medical experiments supervised by Nazi doctor Josef Mengele at Auschwitz. Eva’s account of her survival of the Holocaust offers many relevant lessons on the dangers of hate and prejudice, and the consequences of allowing prejudice to persist, unchecked, in others.

In addition to the importance of her account from a historical perspective, Eva’s life lessons and message of forgiveness have touched the lives of millions of people. In 1995, Eva chose to forgive the Nazis, after deciding that they should no longer have power over her life. She describes forgiving the Nazis as an act of self-healing, self-liberation, and self-empowerment; forgiveness is not about the perpetrator, not about forgetting. It is one step toward repairing the world by helping victims free themselves from perpetrators and remove anger and hatred. Eva shares her own discovery of the power to forgive so that others may see the possibility to heal themselves through forgiveness. Forgiveness provides a way for people to free themselves from hurt, anger, and hatred, from the pain of victimhood. If people find peace with themselves, the world may also find peace.

Recipient of the 2017 Sachem award, Eva’s message of healing reaches around the globe and across social, economic, cultural boundaries.

Cadette, Senior & Ambassador Girl Scouts

Please join us at 5:30pm for the Girl Scout Council's Peacemaker program! The Girl Scout ticket price includes the cost of entry to the Eva Kor event, the Peacemaker patch and this special Girl Scout only program. The program will feature stations with content from CANDLES, Eva's Museum, and enable Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassador’s to learn about (and begin planning for) their Gold Awards as well as explore fundraising and travel opportunities with older scouts. The Peacemaker program will begin prior to the evening’s guest speakers, which will kick off with Girl Scout CEO Danielle Shockey, followed by local treasure and Auschwitz survivor Eva Kor. Plan to stay after the event for a meet and greet with Eva Kor. We hope to see you there!
