identical twins Eva Mozes Kor and Miriam Mozes survived
the deadly genetic experiments conducted by The Angel of
Death, Josef Mengele, in Auschwitz. Their parents,
grandparents, two older sisters, uncles, aunts and cousins
were killed ..
The sisters were put through many extremely brutal
surgeries and experiments by Mengele, who experimented
mainly on twins. Eva later recalled:
was given five injections. That evening I developed
extremely high fever. I was trembling. My arms and my legs
were swollen, huge size. Mengele and Dr. Konig and three
other doctors came in the next morning. They looked at my
fever chart, and Dr. Mengele said, laughingly, 'Too bad,
she is so young. She has only two weeks to live .."
later told how a set of Gypsy twins was brought back from
Mengele's lab after they were sewn back to back. Mengele
had attempted to create a Siamese twin by connecting blood
vessels and organs. The twins screamed day and night until
gangrene set in, and after three days, they died ...
The fact that Eva and Miriam survived Auschwitz was a
miracle in itself, as only few individual twins were still
alive at the time the camp was liberated.
As adults, Eva and Miriam suffered serious health
problems. Eva suffered from miscarriages and tuberculosis.
Her son had cancer. Miriam's kidneys never fully developed
and she died in 1993 of a rare form of cancer, probably
brought on by the unknown medical experiments and
injections which she was subjected to at the hands of
