When Eva Kor was 78 years old, she traveled to Israel to visit her twin sister’s grave one final time.
Not everyone was ready to forgive
Kor always regretted not finding forgiveness before her twin, Miriam died.
During her final visit to Israel, she attempted to reach out to other survivors to share her message, but some refused to see her. They were not ready to forgive the Nazis.
While Kor understood their pain, she hoped to bring them the same peace she found after choosing to forgive.
“I could not find as much joy in living as I do now,” she said of her life before she forgave the Nazis.
Forgive, but never forget
Kor asked for forgiveness
Kor chose to forgive the Nazis, but she didn’t want anyone to ever forget what happened.
While Kor encouraged other survivors to forgive, she also asked for forgiveness from others on her trip to Israel.
Kor asked to be forgiven for never thanking the woman who helped save her life.
