"Eva" An Auschwitz survivor’s journey to forgiveness and healing | A film by Ted Green, Mika Brown and WFYI Public Media, Indianapolis
Virtual Reality: The Eva Experience: Transport your students to Auschwitz with a  360-degree Virtual Reality tour led by Eva.
"Anyone who has gone through Birkenau with Eva Kor had an experience they can never forget. Alas, Eva is no longer. Yet thanks for the blessing of virtual reality, that experience is available to us. We can hear her voice and be with her virtually in the places that were so formative. It is an unforgettable experience now available for eternity."  — Dr. Michael Berenbaum, world-renowned Holocaust scholar

Students don't just learn. They feel.    The Eva Virtual Reality Tour provides students a 360-degree experience at four locations in Auschwitz that were central to Eva's story: The selection platform, the barracks, the "Blood Lab" where the Mengele Twins were experimented on and the spot outside a crematoria where she announced her forgiveness. At each, Eva describes the significance, and accompanying videos add historical context and personal perspective.

Teacher Review  “After the VR tour, students reported understanding the personal story of Ms. Kor in ways they could not have by just reading a textbook. Their discussions and reflections on her message of forgiveness were thoughtful and showed that they began to understand why Ms. Kor chose the forgive the Nazis, but never to forget. It is a lesson that my students will take with them well after this experience.”  - Mrs. Wleklinski, 6th Grade teacher at Zionsville Middle School
