Event Description:

As of 11/8/18:

We are sorry to inform you that this event has been cancelled. Due to a recent medical issue, Mrs. Eva Kor will not be able to give her presentation. Eva is recovering and doing well, but we would like to allow her time to rest and recuperate. As many of you know, she is a tough woman, and she sends her apologies for postponing the event. We hope to reschedule the program at a future date and plan to inform you as soon as the details have been determined. We thank you for your understanding and encourage you all to visit the Indiana Medical History Museum in Indianapolis and CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute to learn more about the two organizations and Eva’s story.

Holocaust survivor Eva Kor shares personal stories followed by a panel discussion on Indiana’s eugenics movement.

The intersection of medical ethics, the Holocaust, and Indiana's history with medical malpractice come together in this engaging lecture and panel discussion. The Holocaust is often viewed as a subject removed from the United States; in particular the Midwest. This event looks at the connections between medical studies (including eugenics) and how these inhumane experiments actually originated in Indiana and were later used by Nazi doctors. Eva Kor will share her personal story of perseverance after being treated as a subject rather than a human being.

Parking is free and available in lot by the museum and on the museum's campus.

Seating is limited. Reserved seats must be claimed by 5:45pm. 

Presented by CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center and Indiana Medical History Museum.
