EVA: A-7063 | KCET
"EVA: A-7063" is the incredible true story of an Auschwitz survivor's journey to forgiveness and healing. At the age of 10, Eva Mozes Kor fought to stay alive inside the concentration camp where she and her sister Miriam were being experimented on as one of "Mengele's twins." After decades of torment and pain following her liberation, she came to the epiphany that she needed to forgive the Nazis to move forward with her life. She has since emerged as arguably the best-known and most-active Holocaust survivor in the world. Despite her body failing her, the 4-foot-9, 83-year-old, who lives in Terre Haute, Indiana, circles the globe delivering her messages of healing and self-empowerment. Her lessons go far beyond her own experience, addressing current global atrocities and two of the biggest problems facing today's youth - bullying and discrimination.
"EVA: A-7063" documents Eva's journey and captures this remarkable Hoosier's legacy as she carries her critically important messages to future generations highlighting the power for good a single dedicated person can have. The documentary serves as a tool for discussing difficult history, discovering shared values and encouraging peace and kindness. Narrated by actor Ed Asner, the film weaves Eva's story through with footage in Poland, Germany, Israel, Romania, England and the United States, along with interviews from CNN's Wolf Blitzer, whose grandparents died in the Holocaust; actor Elliott Gould; and former pro basketball star Ray Allen (a member of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council). The film also includes interviews with Holocaust historians Dr. Michael Berenbaum and Dr. Stephen D. Smith; Lucette Lagnado, a Wall Street Journal reporter and author of Children of the Flames, which details Dr. Mengele's (Auschwitz's "Angel of Death") life in counterpoint to the lives of the surviving twins; and Emmanuel Habiman, a survivor of the Rwandan genocide who saw his parents murdered when he was 9-years-old.
