INDIANAPOLIS — A larger-than-life tribute to a woman with a powerful message is starting to take shape on the side of a downtown Indianapolis building.
The 53-foot-tall mural of Eva Mozes Kor is being painted on the south wall of the 500 Festival Building on Virginia Avenue.
As a Holocaust survivor, Kor became an internationally known champion of human rights and forgiveness.
Kor died last year at the age of 85.
The mural is based on a photo of Kor taken during one of her many visits to Auschwitz, where she was imprisoned as a child.
Kor opened a Holocaust Museum in Terre Haute, where she lived for 59 years.
The mural is expected to be completed by the end of November.
