Eva Education Day and International Holocaust Remembrance Day

“On International Holocaust Remembrance Day and Eva Education Day for the state of Indiana, we remember and honor the memory of the six million Jews who were murdered by the Nazis and their collaborators. As we witness a rise in global antisemitism and intolerance, it is more important than ever to listen to or read the stories of Holocaust survivors, like our museums founder, Eva Kor, and reflect on their experiences, and retell their stories,” said Troy Fears, Executive Director of the museum.
