Holocaust survivor shares experiences during Hannibal visit

Posted:
HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) - Pain, hardship, hope and surprisingly forgiveness are just a few things a Holocaust survivor had to talk about during a visit to Hannibal Friday.

Eva Kor and her twin were separated from their family when they were ten years old.

They went through daily Nazi experiments, but against all odds, they survived.
   
Kor now travels the world speaking about the hardships she faced, but more importantly the lessons she learned.

"Just surviving in my opinion is not enough unless you learn some lessons, and I feel that those lessons can be used by many people today," Kor says. "And that is the reason I think people want me to speak."

To Kor the most important lessons she could ever teach someone is about forgiveness and the healing it can bring.
