Description

As a 10-year-old “Mengele Twin,” Eva Kor survived the experiments of the Nazis’ “Angel of Death.” At 50, she launched the biggest manhunt in history. At 84, she urgently circled the globe to promote the controversial lesson her jaw-dropping journey has taught: healing through forgiveness. Narrated by Hollywood icon Ed Asner and featuring spectacular new footage shot around the world, “Eva” tells the full, unvarnished story of this historic figure for the first time, bolstered by interviews with Holocaust experts, celebrities she’s moved (Elliott Gould, Wolf Blitzer), fellow survivors she’s enraged, and myriad young people whose lives she’s changed — and in many cases saved. Above all this diminutive woman stands as a triumph of the human spirit and an irrepressible voice for the voiceless — “she represents the best in humanity,” Blitzer says — and “Eva” will be her legacy piece.
