  • My family drove from Cincinnati. The drive was insignificant when compared to the experience we received. We were all moved by Eva's story and lesson in forgiveness as a means of taking back the ability to make peace with atrocity. This is one of the most important messages I have ever received. Donations are accepted. They do have tours. There is ample parking.
  • I was doing some online research on forgiveness and came across Eva Mozes Kor. After watching some videos online, I wanted to see her in person and I finally did in November 2017. My only regret was not coming to this place sooner. I was able to learn more about forgiveness through the Question and Answer segment of her talk and asking her one-on-one after. Forgiving does not condone the past actions but instead frees you from the bitter response from it. That's my takeaway. Visiting this place was well worth the 6 hour drive.
  • Eva is incredible. She forgave all of the people who wronged her. I'd like to think I would forgive someone after wronging me, but on a scale as large as hers, I don't think I could bring myself to it. I met Eva three years ago. It was incredible to see someone so abused standing strong and unwavering. I recommend going to the Candles Holocaust Museum ever day of the week (Sunday and Monday excluded). It is an absolutely unforgettable experience and I wouldn't trade it for just about anything. Eva, you are an inspiration!
  • This was a remarkable and emotional museum. The interactive Q & A exhibit was extraordinary. For its size it was one of the most inspirational museums I've seen.
  • Great visit. Got to hear Mrs Kor tell her story in person. Can't believe the original was burned down.
