Holocaust Survivor Leading Trip to Auschwitz
A Holocaust survivor who lives in Terre Haute is leading a group of 51 people to the Nazi concentration camp where she and her family were taken during World War II.
Eva Kor says it's the largest group she has taken to Auschwitz.
Born in Romania in 1934, Kor and her twin sister, Miriam, were only 10 years old when they were loaded onto cattle cars and taken there.
The two became one of about 1,500 sets of twins used as guinea pigs in medical experiments at Auschwitz.
65 years later, a travel group including Kor, college professors and Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett will help her celebrate the camp's liberation by Allied troops.
