Holocaust survivor spreads hope in Luzerne County

DALLAS TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) -- A woman who lived through the Holocaust made a stop in our area Tuesday night to share her incredible story of survival.

Eva Kor put on a heartwrenching presentation at Misericordia University in Luzerne County.

In 1944, Eva and her family were forced into a cattle car packed with other Jewish prisoners.

10-year-old Eva and her twin sister Miriam became part of a group of children used as human guinea pigs in genetic experiments.

More than seven decades after she regained her freedom, Eva reflected on the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last month.

"I am detested that in today's world there are people who dare to wear KKK outfits and aren't even ashamed of it!" said Eva.

But the Holocaust survivor doesn't carry any hate in her heart.  In fact, Eva has made it her mission to preach forgiveness.

She opened CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Indiana.
