Last Prisoners Leave Alcatraz (1963)
This Day in WWII History: Jan 27, 1945: The Red Army liberates the remained inmates of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp
Eva Kor is a Holocaust survivor and victim of Dr. Josef Mengele’s medical experiments on twins at Auschwitz. Mengele was given the name “Angel of Death,” because of his position as a SS physician in charge of selecting which new prisoners of the camp would be killed or selected for forced labor. Kor and her sister launched a search for other twins who survived Mengele’s experiments and located 122 individual survivors. She founded C.A.N.D.L.E.S. #Holocaust museum in Indiana.
