In a shocking interview, Holocaust survivor Eva Kor tells the Sydney Morning Herald: “if you forgive your worst enemy it will heal your soul and set you free”.
When Eva was a kid of 10, her family was sent to Auschwitz by Hitler’s loons. Her parents were “processed” while Eva and her twin sister came to the attention of the demented Dr Josef Mengele YM”S, whose quest for medical knowledge overrode every ethical consideration and fundamental respect for life.
Like sadistic gunfighters, Mengele and his minions blazed away with syringes, injecting Eva and Miriam with all manner of toxic compounds just to see what would happen. The sisters survived, but in 1993, when Miriam died, Eva felt compelled to retrace the lines of fate and found herself in contact with Dr Hans Munch, an SS doctor who has done what he could to help the Jewish guinea pigs and who, in the postwar years had sunk into deep depression and guilt. She decided to forgive him and, consequently, Mengele himself – Eva tell the SMH. Other survivors and the families of many who perished questioned her right to morally pardon the unpardonable.
