Ivy Tech Community College is hosting Eva Mozes Kor, a Holocaust survivor, who will share her story and discuss the importance of forgiveness Thursday, April 18 at 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. The event will take place at the Ivy Tech Marion Conference Center, 261 S. Commerce Drive, Marion, IN.
Kor founded CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in 1995 to 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.
Powered by a never-give-up attitude, Eva has emerged through a life filled with trauma as a brilliant example of the power of the human spirit to overcome. She is a community leader, a champion of human rights, tireless educator of young people, and has been sharing her story publicly since 1978.
This event is free and open to the public. A book signing will follow. RSVP to Susan Banker 765-651-3100 ext. 3301 or email@example.com by Monday, April 15.
