On this day in 1945 prisoners of the largest concentration of the holocaust were liberated.

Auschwitz housed thousands of men, women, and children.
   
One of those children is now a woman living in Terre Haute.

Eva Kor spent nine months in Auschwitz.
   
At the time she was just ten-years-old.
   
She was separated from her mother, father, and older sisters upon arriving at the concentration camp.
   
Eva and her twin sister were used as human guinea pigs, under the direction of Dr. Josef Mengele.
   
Forgiveness is what helped her move on.

"What do you do with all that pain? Carry it around? Most people do and I discovered that I had a choice to forgive and be free," Kor said.

To learn more about Eva's story you can visit the Candles Holocaust Museum and Education center in Terre Haute.
   
The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday.
   
Admission is $5.
   
Group rates are available.
