We met Eve Kor a survivor of the holocaust, and got a first hand account of her experience. Really brings home what happened, My Dad saw on of the camps in World War II, but this really brought it home.

Just like our WWII Veterans, Holocaust survivors are departing this world at an alarming rate. Who would think that you can be in Terre Haute, Indiana, and be able to meet 3 different survivors, one of them a twin used in human medical experimentation by Nazi doctor Joseph Mengele. I just recently visited and quite unexpectedly was introduced to a... More

I took my son to Candles Holocaust Museum. We met Eva Kor and she was so gracious, she spoke with my son - asking him about his interest in World War II history. I was touched by her thoughtfulness. It was a great honor to meet Eva and have the experience of speaking with her in person. We thought the... More

We listened to Eva Kor's presentation of her eyewitness account of her experience as a child in Auschwitz concentration camp. It was riveting and brought the pages of history to life. Unforgettable. Do not miss this stop if you are I the area of Terre Haute IN.

Not something I would have expected to find in Terre Haute, Indiana. However, it is well worth the time and effort to seeki out and paying a visit. While not as big as many other Holocaust museums Candles Holocaust Museum has an emotional impact... because of the involvement of a local resident, Eva Kor. While dedicated to the memory of... More

My ten year old son and I went to the museum as part of a school project. It was an amazing experience. We went on a Thursday when the docent was Mickey Kor. He spoke for about an hour and a half about his life and experience. He played the piano for us (God Bless America). He was very interesting.... More

The Kors do a wonderful job educating us about the Holocoust. They have many pictures and artifacts and share their very personal, tragic stories.

I've only been here once, but I remember it well. It's a very educational place to take kids. There isn't very much things to do hands-on wise. When I went here on a field trip, we had a lady from the Holocaust that was in a concentration camp that actually talked to us and told us everything. I'm happy I... More

My daughter, at the time of our visit, was very much into WWII history and the holocaust in particular. She was doing a school project and part of the project was to interview someone. Eva Kor took the time to sit with my daughter and answer her questions. Paige walked away feeling like she had just met a rock star!... More
