Reserve your space now for CANDLES' sixth group trip to Auschwitz!
Let survivor Eva Kor be your expert guide.
In addition to visiting the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, Krakow, Poland's historic Jewish quarter (including Oscar Schindler's factory and the filming location of Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List), and the Wieliczka Salt Mine, travelers will have the option of visiting Portz, Romania -- Eva's home village.

CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center is the only organization in the world dedicated to the memory of the twin victims and survivors of medical experimentation at Auschwitz. We honor and celebrate the lives of the Mengele Twins by telling their stories to educate the world and prevent similar atrocities. Our institution is not only a witness to history but also an active voice outside the museum walls. By working to prevent genocide on a global level and transform prejudice on a local level, we aim to create a world free from hatred and genocide.
Many thanks to all those who helped celebrate Eva's 80th birthday. Birthday greetings came in from all over the world. Here is the video tribute presented at the February 1st celebration.
