Auschwitz Forgiven

Today is the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. It has become known as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Eva Kor is at the camp in Poland today with a group of teachers, students, and others. Eva was one of the twins who survived the experiments of Nazi doctor Joseph Mengele at Auschwitz. For years she was filled with anger and hatred over her ordeal. But meeting a Nazi doctor changed everything. She forgave that man, and even forgave Dr. Mengele. But her decision doesn’t sit well with some Holocaust survivors. Eva talks with Dick about her experiences during the Holocaust and how forgiveness changed her life.
