As a 10-year-old “Mengele Twin,” Eva Kor suffered some of the worst of the Holocaust. At 50, she helped launch the biggest manhunt in history. At age 60, she forgave the Nazis, and spent the rest of her 25 years urgently circling the globe to promote the controversial lesson her journey taught: Healing through forgiveness. Narrated by Hollywood icon Ed Asner, “Eva: A-7063” tells the full, astonishing story of this historic figure for the first time, tracking her from Auschwitz to Israel to the United States — even into the U.S. Capital Rotunda for her jaw-dropping arrest — and ultimately to her courageous return to the Nazi death camp. It reveals her hidden pain, unbridled rage and the unextinguished love for humanity that transformed her into an international spokeswoman followed by millions.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
American Public Television
“Incredible and inspiring.”
Holocaust expert Michael Berenbaum
“‘Eva: A-7063’ is a powerful film that so accurately portrays Eva Kor’s powerful life, her tenacity, her veracity and her inspiring personality. In a broken world she has brought healing, in a divided world she has fought for unity. At four score and four her work is not done. The power of her message embodied in her very essence of her being is not merely undiminished by the passage of time but made for ever more urgent by the time in which we live.”
Ivy Schamis, Holocaust Education teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., site of a tragic shooting in 2018
“Eva Kor is a true inspiration to the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The students were mesmerized watching the documentary as Eva Kor exemplifies such strength and resilience after all she’s been through. Pain must not be wasted — we must learn from one another and share our stories in order to make this world a better place.”
