12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Cheri Pugh (holocaust historian) on September 23, 2002
Format: Paperback
There have by now been many excellent accounts by adult concentration camp survivors, but Eva Mozes Kor, in a simple, matter of fact style, shows us a different view of Auschwitz as it was for a child and human guinea pig in the terrible medical experiments of the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele. Eva and her twin sister Miriam were 10 years old when they were forcibly separated from their family upon arrival at Auschwitz, kept alive to be experimented upon while their parents and siblings were sent to the gas chamber. Eva's witness of what happened to them as Mengele's guinea pigs provides an important historical account and a really inspiring story of the incredible strength and resourcefulness of these children in the face of a man and a system that intended their death. Through ingenuity, mutual sacrifice and sheer strenght of will, Eva and Miriam survive Auschwitz. This autobiographic story continues through the post-WW2 years as the girls cope with the loss of their family and live under another totalitarian system in communist-ruled Romania, and finally emigrate to Israel. 'A tribute to the ingenuity and indomitable spirit of children everywhere.'

Format: Paperback
Eva Mozes Kor and her twin sister were two of the thousands of children used in Nazi medical experiments while experiencing the additional horrors of concentration camp life. Mrs. Kor tells the story through the eyes of a ten-year-old child: carefully, matter-of-factly, and without embellishment. Her descriptions of what it took for them to survive life in Auschwitz and what happened before and after are riveting to read. Eva and her sister changed from normal children to objects of ridicule to "lab animals" through no choice of their own and their bewilderment at the events taking place around them is evident. This book would be excellent for history, religious school or any social science class, as well as for anyone who would like to be more informed about the Holocaust. I recommend it highly.

This book was especially touching, because it makes you feel as if you're there witnessing the horrors and helplessness felt by eva and her sister. Through her account, you can actually picture everything as seen through the eyes of these ten year olds, so that you also feel their every emotions. This book would be very informative and beneficial in any history, philosophy, psychology, and adjustment courses, from junior-high on to college level. It defenitely makes the grade. Mrs. Mozes Kor has so much to teach us from her experience and philosophy of life.

Format: Paperback
I this book a few summers ago after visiting Eva's Holocaust museum in Terre Haute, Indiana. The book was excellent, but it is an EXTREMELY worthwhile experience to travel to Indiana and see the CANDLES Museum and hear Eva's story from her own mouth. It is very moving and she is a wonderful and strong person- a true thrill to meet in person. I reccommed this book on account of its historical and emotional content, and reccomend the museum for people to realize just how lucky they really are.

I met Eva when she came to my university to speak about Forigveness. I also had the amazing opportunity to interview her for the school newspaper. It's incredible to me how, after everything that she's been through, she is able to speak with such love and complete forgiveness in her heart. I think that she truly did set herself free when she forgave the nazis, and especially when she forgave Dr. Mengele for all of the pain he caused her in her life... When she came to speak at my school, word got out to a nearby Jewish organization that she was coming to speak on forgiveness -- not just forgiving the nazis for what they did during the Holocaust, but forgiveness in general. A number of people from the organization left hate messages on the voicemail of the professor organizing the talk. Then a number of Holocaust survivors showed up to the talk that Eva gave and spoke out against her in the end, saying hurtful and hateful things to her for her decision to forgive. Those Holocaust survivors, who went through the same pain as Eva, are continuing to live with hate in their hearts. Eva, on the other hand, lives with joy and spirit and peace, because she was able to let go. She was able to forgive. I applaud her for that. And I think she serves as an example for the way we should be living our everyday lives. Go Eva! Thank you!
