'Eva A-7063' premieres Thursday on PBS stations

The documentary centers around a Holocaust survivor who lives in Terre Haute.

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - The documentary that centers around a Holocaust survivor who lives in Terre Haute made its broadcast premiere Thursday night.

Eva Kor and her twin sister survived the horrors of the Auschwitz concentration camp where they endured horrific experiments.

But despite all she's suffered, Kor now travels the world, spreading a message of healing through forgiveness. It's a lesson she hopes will live on in this film.

"It's going to teach people that there's always hope after despair. There is always a tomorrow after disaster and, if we don't give up on ourselves and our dreams, we can accomplish anything," she said.

Eva said the outpouring of support at the April theatre premiere demonstrates the power of doing the right thing and not losing your way.

Governor Eric Holcomb attended the premiere, surprising Kor with a bouquet of flowers after the showing of the film. He said in a tweet that "her life has inspired me & countless others."

The film has won several awards. It will be seen locally on WFYI Thursday with a simulcast on their Facebook page.
