PLEASE SAVE THE DATE--Faculty-please invite your classes to attend
Thursday, April 3rd, 2014, 3pm, Emens Auditorium


Mrs. Eva Mozes Kor - a living Holocaust Survivor (she and her twin sister Miriam having survived serving as subjects in Josef Mengele’s infamous “Twin Studies” in the Nazi Death Camp in Auschwitz, Poland during the 2nd World War) – will be in Muncie to give a Free Lecture – at Emens Auditorium on Thursday – April 3rd, 2014.

The event will begin at 3:00 PM, with the showing of a 40 minute documentary titled: Forgiving Dr. Mengele, followed by a few brief remarks and introductions, and then – Eva will address the audience at 4:00 PM. No one who attends this event – will ever forget it!

One simple fact – is the passing of time. Sadly – it will not be long until there will be NO REMAINING LIVING HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS. Do NOT miss this increasingly rare opportunity.
In addition to being able to come – as a moment of living history – and document the atrocities of the Holocaust, Mrs. Kor – quite remarkably – brings with her a special message of “Forgiveness”. Eva will tell you that if you want to be happy – you have to have peace in your heart – and to gain peace in your heart – you must forgive those who have wronged you – in due course. This message of forgiveness is not universally accepted among other Holocaust Survivors – but Eva says it is true. She says that “Forgiveness – is a seed for Peace”.

Earlier that day – Eva will speak to 500 middle school students – from Wilson, Northside, and Burris schools in Muncie.

This event is brought to you by the Committee for a Positive Influence, and the Jewish Studies Program at Ball State University, with assistance from the Muncie Action Plan, and generous funding from The Community Foundation of Muncie and Delaware County, The Ball Brother’s Foundation, and the Provost’s Office at Ball State.
