Publisher's Summary

The Nazis spared their lives because they were twins.

In the summer of 1944, Eva Mozes Kor and her family arrived at Auschwitz.

Within 30 minutes, they were separated. Her parents and two older sisters were taken to the gas chambers, while Eva and her twin, Miriam, were herded into the care of the man who became known as the Angel of Death: Dr Josef Mengele. They were 10 years old.

While twins at Auschwitz were granted the 'privileges' of keeping their own clothes and hair, they were also subjected to Mengele's sadistic medical experiments. They were forced to fight daily for their own survival and many died as a result of the experiments, or from the disease and hunger rife in the concentration camp. 

In a narrative told simply, with emotion and astonishing restraint, The Twins of Auschwitz shares the inspirational story of a child's endurance and survival in the face of truly extraordinary evil. 

Also included is an epilogue on Eva's incredible recovery and her remarkable decision to publicly forgive the Nazis. Through her museum and her lectures, she dedicated her life to giving testimony on the Holocaust, providing a message of hope for people who have suffered and worked toward goals of forgiveness, peace and the elimination of hatred and prejudice in the world.

A brilliant true love story between sisters

I listened to this in one night,unable to press pause. This true tale is as poignant as The diary of Anne Frank and actually compliments and could almost be an extension of Anne’s story as Eva tells her brave story of survival in the first person perspective of surviving life in Auschwitz as one of a set of twin girls who were experimented on by Dr Mangla. It is also a journey of self discovery and forgiveness not for what was done, but for the victim to let go of hate.
