The film, produced by WFYI Public Media in collaboration with Ted Green Films and Mika Brown and distributed by American Public Television, examines one of the Holocaust’s most famous and controversial survivors. Kor and her twin sister, Miriam, persevered through the radical experiments of Nazi Dr. Josef Mengele, but those tests took a physical and emotional toll that lasts to this day.

“I heard (Nazi Dr. Josef) Mengele say that I only had two weeks to live, and I decided I was going to prove him wrong,” Kor said about her Auschwitz experience. “I didn’t understand what I did. Why did Hitler hate me?”

At age 85, Kor now has a better understanding of why she’s 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.
