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!!!

  1. I don’t believe a word this woman says. Are you sure, FG, that she was “experimented on” as a twin by Dr. Mengele or are you just repeating what has been said. What kind of experiments did Mengele do with twins? How can educated people take these dwarf women seriously? She and Irene Zisblatt.

  2. The picture of the Auschwitz children has always been problematical for the high priests of the Orthodox. It is of course taken for a Soviet propaganda film made a few weeks after the camp was taken over by the Soviets. The propaganda had said that all under 14’s were sent straight to the gas chamber but somehow now there were hundreds of children.
    Interestingly when you see the whole film you realize that the vast majority of children wore normal clothes and these with the stripey jackets were only a small section at the front who were given the ill fitting adult clothes by the Soviet film crew.
    To resolve the problem the orthodox priests claimed these children were not Jewish but were Polish or that they were all Mengeles twins !
    Alternatively some orthodox defenders claim the photo of the children was taken in 1943 by the SS !
    Here is the redoubtable Vincent Reynouard discussing the children in his latest video . Go to 5.00 mins into the video , although in French it is worth watching if only for the film of the very healthy looking children.

    • I agree with you, Peter, that these pictures that are supposed to represent the liberation of Auschwitz were not taken on Jan. 27, 1945. They were taken weeks, in some cases months, later in preparation for a propaganda film that is still shown to visitors at the site. They are not necessarily people/children who were inmates of the camp! But because they show fat, well-fed healthy kids, revisionists themselves want to go along with the fiction that these are real liberation pictures. Propaganda trumps truth, even among revisionists! What do you say to this?
