Forgiving Dr. Mengele is the story of an unusual act of forgiveness by Auschwitz survivor Eva Mozes Kor, who along with her twin sister, Miriam, was a victim of Nazi doctor Josef Mengele's cruel genetic experiments--an experience that would haunt them their entire lives. Eva's personal journey from survivor/victim to advocate for reconciliation is sparked when she, in an attempt to get information about the experiments, meets with another former Auschwitz doctor. Her ideas about justice, revenge, and the possibility of healing through forgiveness--as well as the strong opposition from some other survivors--become a window to a larger discussion of the many ways people define forgiveness. This is a shorter educational version of the feature film.
