Eva Kor presents a very personal and extensive presentation to visitors of all ages. She knows how to reach children and spends a great amount of time answering questions. Very memorable.

The story that Eva Kor tells, is riveting. Her twin sister and I Eva became residents at age 10, and are concentration camp survivors from 1940-1945 at Auschwitz. She is a local hero, that needs to be heard, before the story is lost.

Had planned to visit museum for the past 2 years. Finally went yesterday. Interesting collection of pictures and posters. Very interesting talk given by Mrs. Joe. After her speech, it was hard to fathom how one could survive the camps. I think she had everyone...More

Two websites for the same place have different information on Saturday hours 1 has closed the other has open 1-4 which is correct? Don't want to drive 3 hours to find it closed.
