INDIANAPOLIS -- A documentary film about the life of Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor will have its world premiere at Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University on Thursday, April 5, 2018.
The film explores Kor's life as a Jewish girl on a farm in Romania, to the time she spent at Auschwitz, to the now 83-year-old's journey to forgiveness and healing.
"I heard (Nazi Dr. Josef) Mengele say that I only had two weeks to live, and I decided I was going to prove him wrong. I didn't understand what I did. Why did Hitler hate me?" asked Kor.
The film is a partnership between WFYI, Ted Green and Mika Brown.
CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center and Indiana State University are also hosting a second premiere in Kor's hometown of Terre Haute on Saturday, April 14 at Tilson Auditorium at ISU. Ticket information and other details for the event will be announced in January.
