"Eva" An Auschwitz survivor’s journey to forgiveness and healing | A film by Ted Green, Mika Brown and WFYI Public Media, Indianapolis

ROMANIA

Our most difficult trip (see: Ted’s confiscated license) but so rewarding. We stayed in Cluj, where Eva and Miriam lived for a few years after liberation, but the highlights were the daytrips to their tiny hometown of Portz. Eva was greeted like a returning hero by the mayor and with heavy emotions by former neighbors. Most moving for us: Interviewing Eva in the little schoolhouse where the twins — the only Jews in the school — were brutally picked on; walking with Eva down the street where her family was carted out of town on the way to Auschwitz; and interviewing Eva’s best childhood friend, Luci, who broke down at the memories. Really something.
