Library screening ‘Eva: A-7063’January 21, 2020
DUBOIS — Dubois Branch Library will show screenings of “Eva: A-7063” at 1 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27, and 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28.
Monday, Jan. 27 is Holocaust Remembrance Day. The day marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. Indiana resident Eva Mozes Kor, survivor of Auschwitz and survivor at age 10 of inhuman experiments by notorious Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, emerged as the leading global figure in the fight to keep the lessons of the Holocaust alive, delivering a message at once controversial and immensely powerful — forgiveness.
Eva Mozes Kor stood just 4 feet 9 inches tall, but she seems so much bigger in this film about her life. The film, produced by WFYI Public Media in collaboration with Ted Green Films and Mika Brown, offers incredible details about Kor’s journey from Romanian Jewish farm girl to Nazi death camp survivor to leading global force on the power of healing through forgiveness.
Eva died July of 2019 at the age of 85. She had developed a better understanding of why she endured so many trials throughout her life. Her captivating story doesn’t come without controversy, particularly her decision to publicly forgive Mengele, Hitler and all Nazis, and it’s all part of “Eva: A-7063,” masterfully written and produced by award-winning filmmaker Ted Green.
Green and co-producer Brown have traveled the world capturing heartfelt interviews and stunning scenes of Kor’s most significant successes — stories of lives changed after hearing about her experiences and life perspective. The film is narrated by Hollywood icon Ed Asner and includes on-camera appearances from CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, former NBA great Ray Allen, TV and movie star Elliott Gould and many others who reveal touching accounts of Kor’s impact on their own lives.
The movie last 90 minutes with time for discussion for those who want to stay afterwards. For more information, contact Dubois Branch Library at 812-6780-2548.
