Eva Mozes Kor was just 10 when she and her family arrived at Auschwitz, in the summer of 1944. Within 30 minutes, she had been separated from them all apart from her twin sister, Miriam.

While her parents and two older sisters were taken to the gas chambers, the twins were herded towards a man who would later become known as the Angel of Death – Dr Josef Mengele. 

While twins at Auschwitz were granted the ‘privileges’ of keeping their own clothes and hair, they were also subjected to Mengele’s sadistic medical experiments.

They were forced to fight daily for their own survival, and many died as a result of the experiments or from the disease and hunger rife in the concentration camp.  

Publishing for the first time in the UK to coincide with 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz, Eva’s story of one child’s endurance and survival in the face of evil is both remarkable and inspirational. 

Eva died last year, but an epilogue details how she dedicated her life to giving testimony on the Holocaust, as well as speaking out on issues of social justice and she will perhaps be best remembered for her public declaration to forgive all Nazis. 

The Twins of Auschwitz by Eva Mozes Kor is published by Monoray, priced £7.99 (paperback). Available now.
