Paul McNeil will lead a discussion of Eva Kor's biography Surviving the Angel of Death: The True Story of a Mengele Twin in Auschwitz. Participants are encouraged (but not required) to read the book in advance. Ask for a copy at the library’s information desk.
Eva Mozes Kor was just ten years old when she arrived in Auschwitz. While her parents and two older sisters were taken to the gas chambers, she and her twin, Miriam, were herded into the care of the man known as the Angel of Death, Dr. Josef Mengele. Subjected to sadistic medical experiments, she was forced to fight daily for her and her twin's survival. In this incredible true story written for young adults, readers learn of a child's endurance and survival in the face of truly extraordinary evil.
