C.A.N.D.L.E.S.---CHILDREN OF AUSCHWITZ NAZI DEADLY LAB EXPERIMENTS SURVIVORS. This is a small and powerful museum of Eva Kor and her sister and what they experienced as part of Dr Mengeles experiments on twins. There is alot of information here to read and then you can do tons of research online after your visit. The gal working/volunteering there gave us valuable information as we started through the little museum to help bring it all together for us. Be sure to visit the interactive hologram on the other side of the museum also. Admission charge is $5.00. Well worth a stop if you are any where close by.

Our trips to Candles have always been personalized by Eva Kor who, along with her twin sister, were experimented upon by Dr. Mengele. Unfortunately, she passed away recently so her talks are now a wonderful memory.

Spend some time reading and absorbing the impact and angst of the educational and moving displays. Save time the ask questions of the holographic image of a holocaust survivor. Truly an amazing experience! Age 6+ recommended by museum.

We paid our $5 each to see the museum which is extremely small, but it focuses on the now deceased Eva Kor. Much of the information is easily obtained off of the Internet, but this museum contains specific personal information about this Holocaust survivor. So, in that regard it is unique. Restrooms are immediately available. To the left of the entry is the small room of artifacts and information, and to the right side and in the back are supposedly two additional exhibits. However our visit was ruined when at least 40 people showed up and the museum was not prepared for them. The museum display walls are on wheels and it was announced that the walls would be moving so that chairs could be set up to accommodate this group and a 45-minute movie would be shown. Since we were only halfway through the first part of the museum and had not even been to the exhibits in the back — and could not even get to the back because of all these people, I spoke up and asked if we would be getting a refund. The gentleman at the museum did refund us and apologized stating that they did not know this group was coming. The website clearly states for any group of 10 or more the museum should be contacted first. Please PLEASE do this. Our visit was ruined.

words can not describe the feelings one gets by visiting this museum, Eva Kor is such a powerful soul, I had just visited Yad vashem in Israel and was passing through and heard of her death.. I wanted to discuss the trip with Eva. A true survivor and hero she was.
