This past June, CANDLES and its founder, Eva Kor, led 99 people from across the United States on an educational journey to Auschwitz. Indiana State University history professor Isaac Land was one of those participants, and he offered mini-lectures to provide other tour members with historical context on the sites they were visiting. Here is a link to one of his talks, titled, "The Holocaust and Public Memory in Poland."

This past Saturday, 200 people gathered at O'Shaughnessy Hall at St. Mary-of-the-Woods College to reflect on the powerful message of Carl Wilkens, to dine with friends new and old, and to celebrate Eva Kor's 80th birthday.


"Eva Chats" Coming Soon!

on Thu, 11/21/2013 - 15:48

Eva Kor gets many, many emails and requests for interviews. But there are only 24 hours in a day (and she works for about 20 of them), so we are starting an initiative called "Eva Chats," to debut soon!

You can "tweet" your questions to Eva and she will answer them live on the free CANDLES Ustream channel! So stay tuned to hear when the first "Eva Chats" session will be.

Kudos to our Indiana State University student worker Brett Taylor for the idea!
