"A Blessing, Not a Burden"
A Story of Perseverance, Resilience, and Forgiveness

June 5; 6:30 - 8 PM, McFarland Hall

Dr. Alex Kor and Graham Honaker will offer a presentation on their new book, "A Blessing, Not a Burden: My Parents Remarkable Holocaust Story and My Fight to Keep Their Legacy Alive." 

Dr. Kor's parents, Eva and Mickey Kor, survived the Holocaust, settled in Indiana, and went on to lead lives that served as an inspiration to thousands. The co-authors will detail the Kors' remarkable and harrowing journeys and touch on Eva Kor's public forgiveness of the Nazis, a controversial yet courageous stand. A question and answer session will follow their presentation.
