This film recounts the incredible true story of an Auschwitz survivor's journey to forgiveness and healing.

Eva: A-7063, airing Monday, April 20 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV, details Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor's journey from Romanian Jewish farm girl to Nazi death camp survivor to leading global force on the power of healing through forgiveness. The film 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?”

Kor passed away on July 4, 2019, but in the film, at age 85, she had 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.
