POTSDAM, N.Y. -- The Holocaust survivor noted for publicly forgiving the Nazis visited Clarkson Monday to share her story.
Eva Kor and her family were taken to Auschwitz when she was 10-years-old. Only Kor and her twin sister survived. She later moved to Israel, where she met her husband and moved to Indiana.
Kor is the founder of CANDLES, which is a museum dedicated to the children of the Nazis lab experiments.
Kor's moving story centers around her forgiveness of the Nazis. She says that through her museum and public speeches, she hopes her message of forgiveness resonates with the audience.
"It is in many ways, the most amazing thing. It costs no money. It's absolutely free. So I like that everyone can afford it. I don't know if anything else in the world that can change a person's life that much is free," said Eva Mozes Kor.
Clarkson Professor Sheila Weiss is writing a book about Nazi eugenics experiments, like the one Kor was involved in.
Weiss said that once she came across Kor's story, she knew she had to try to get her to come to Clarkson.
