Forgiving Dr. Mengele tells the remarkable story of Eva Moses Kor-who, with her ten-year-old twin sister, Miriam, walked out of Auschwitz concentration camp in 1945, at the very front of a line of prisoners filmed by Russian filmmakers at the liberation of the camp. But, as Eva eventually discovered, her liberation from Auschwitz was only a physical one. She has spent the rest of her life struggling to achieve her psychological and spiritual liberation. The issue of forgiveness forms the core of this remarkable film, which examines how and why a victim of extreme physical and emotional torture chose to heal her wounds by forgiving her oppressors.
