About EVA A-7063
As a 10-year-old Mengele Twin, Eva Kor suffered the worst of the Holocaust. At 50, she launched the biggest manhunt in history. Now in her 80s, she urgently circles the globe to promote the controversial lesson her journey has taught: Healing through forgiveness. Narrated by Hollywood icon Ed Asner, Eva: A-7063 tells the full story of this historic figure for the first time, tracking her from Auschwitz to Israel to the United States — even into the U.S. Capitol for her jaw-dropping arrest — and ultimately to her courageous return to the Nazi death camp. It reveals her hidden pain, unbridled rage and the unextinguished love for humanity that transformed her into an international spokeswoman followed by millions. Eva’s is a triumph of hope, and this film is her legacy piece.
