Library planning Eva Education Day event


The Jackson County Public Library invites the public to help celebrate Eva Education Day at 1 p.m. Monday.

That day marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz during World War II.

Eva Kor, who passed away in July 2019, was a survivor of Auschwitz and went on to be a world-renowned ambassador for hope, healing and humanity.

The library will show the film "Eva: A-7063" in the meeting room at the library, 303 W. Second St., Seymour.

The film, produced by WFYI Public Media in collaboration with Ted Green Films and Mika Brown, offers details about Kor’s journey from a Romanian Jewish farm girl to Nazi death camp survivor to leading global force on the power of healing through forgiveness.

Green and co-producer Brown traveled the world capturing interviews and scenes of Kor’s most significant successes — stories of lives changed after hearing about her experiences and life perspective.

The film is narrated by Hollywood icon Ed Asner and includes appearances from CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, former NBA great Ray Allen, television and movie star Elliott Gould and many others who reveal accounts of Kor’s impact on their own lives.

The special guest for the program is local resident Charles Moman, who accompanied Kor on several trips to concentration camps and will be on hand to introduce the film and answer questions.

Moman also will speak briefly about his work with Kor for the CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Terre Haute.

Registration is preferred by Sunday at or by calling 812-523-4636.
