INDIANAPOLIS — A larger-than-life tribute is now complete in downtown Indianapolis for Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor.

The 53-foot tall mural is on the south wall of the 500 Festival building on Virginia Avenue.

The mural is based on a photo of Kor taken during one of her visits to Auschwitz, where she was imprisoned as a child. It was painted by Pamela Bliss, a Hoosier artist behind outdoor murals of icons like Kurt Vonnegut, Reggie Miller, and John Mellencamp.

Now, everyone driving along the Indiana Cultural Trail will be met by the face of Kor, one of the most inspirational Hoosiers, with her signature message of hope, healing, and forgiveness.
