Eva: A-7063: The Story of Eva Kor
Tuesday, September 10th from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
At the Salem Public Library
Free event.

Narrated by Hollywood icon Ed Asner, Eva: A-7063 tells the full, astonishing story of this historic figure for the first time, tracking her from Auschwitz to Israel to the United States – even into the U.S. Capitol for her jaw-dropping arrest – and ultimately to her courageous return to the Nazi death camp. As a 10-year-old “Mengele Twin,” Eva Kor suffered some of the worst of the Holocaust. At 50, she launched the biggest manhunt in history. Until her recent passing, Eva circled the globe to promote the lesson her journey has taught: Healing through forgiveness. “Eva is more than just a story,” says actor Elliot Gould. “She’s a revelation of what’s possible in the human condition.”

This program is made possible by IU Cinema, Cicada Cinema, Washington County Chamber of Commerce, and the IU Center for Rural Engagement.
