Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor has made a lucrative career out of her Auschwitz experience

This quote is from an article that is on the comment section of the YouTube video of Eva Mozes Kor speaking at Clarkson University on October 8, 2012:

Sheila Faith Weiss, professor of history in the Department of Humanities and Social Sciences at Clarkson, arranged for Kor to share her story [with the students at Clarkson].

“I received a $277,000 National Science Foundation grant to write a biography of Dr. Mengele’s mentor, the German human geneticist Baron Otmar von Verschuer, and I had been in contact with Eva Mozes Kor,” Weiss says. “Because I am teaching a seminar on the Holocaust this semester, I asked Eva whether she might be willing to give a lecture at Clarkson. Normally, she would have charged more for her talk, but generously agreed to accept significantly less so we could bring her here. Her message is especially important for our students to hear.”

Did you get that?  Eva Mozes Kor “generously agreed to accept significantly less” to give a talk to the students at Clarkson on October 8, 2012.  Eva has made a career out of being a survivor of Auschwitz.  I previously blogged about her on this blog post.

How much money has Eva made off her stay in the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, where she was one of the twins experimented on by Dr. Josef Mengele?

I previously blogged here about Eva Kor, who was one of the 611 children who did not join the “death march” out of Auschwitz. The photo above shows her marching out of the camp after Soviet soldiers arrived on January 27, 1945 to “liberate” the camp.  Notice her chubby cheeks.  Dr. Mengele allegedly plied the children with chocolate, and gave the little girls hair ribbons.  That monster! How could he do something like that to innocent children!!!
