If there's one thing Sara Ginaite-Rubinson, 85. is adamant about, it's that she is not a hero. As a Holocaust survivor and part of an anti-Nazi resistant group, she's often classified as a hero. "I don't think a survivor is a hero. A hero is a person who tried and didn't survive. To survive was accidental; it was pure luck. This is the reality of the Holocaust," she recalls.
Eva Kor is a Holocaust survivor and victim of Dr. Josef Mengele’s medical experiments on twins at Auschwitz. Mengele was given the name “Angel of Death,” because of his position as a SS physician in charge of selecting which new prisoners of the camp would be killed or selected for forced labor. Kor and her sister launched a search for other twins who survived Mengele’s experiments and located 122 individual survivors. She founded C.A.N.D.L.E.S. #Holocaust museum in Indiana.
