Win Eva Mozes Kor’s Holocaust memoir The Twins of Auschwitz

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.

Support your Jewish community. Support your Jewish News

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

100% of your donation will help us continue celebrating our community, in all its dynamic diversity...

Engaging

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.

Celebrating

There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.

Pioneering

In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.

Campaigning

Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish News also produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
