Reviews Echoes from Auschwitz

  • Angela
    The best part about reading this book was not only that my little sister and I read it together but also that the author Eva Mozes Kor signed it. It was an autographed copy from this amazing woman whose childhood was during the Holocaust!
  • Abelina
    I would recommend this book to everyone that doesn't know much about Hitler and the Jewish camps. It will keep you wanting to read it all in one sitting.

    For those who have read Mozes Kor's memoir aimed at the YA audience, there is not much that is new or different here. For me, the lack of effective editing interfered somewhat with my connection to this book. It reads like a transcription, which doesn't necessarily translate well into prose. I frequently found myself frustrated with the repetition. Despite that, I'm glad I read it, and it references some other books which I look forward to readin...

    The editing isn't great - but the story is riveting, terrifying, inspiring!!

    Echoes from Auschwitz: Dr. Mengele's Twins: The story of Eva and Miriam Mozes" is the story of Eva Mozes Kor and her sister, Miriam. Eva and Miriam were twins who ended up in Auschwitz, studied by the infamous Dr. Mengele. The story is written very simply and does help you see the horror the Mozes family must have experienced as they were first sent from their home to a Jewish ghetto, then loaded onto cattle cars and brought to Auschwitz. Eva rec...

    I met Ms. Mozes Kor at an ACRP (Association of Clinical Research Professionals) chapter meeting. The atrocities down to her by Dr. Mengele is the reason the Nuremberg Code was developed and shaped the course of medical research, my profession. Ms. Mozes was a twin and a subject of Dr. Mengele's research experiments at Auschwitz during WWII. This memoir tells the story of being a medical research subject through the eyes of a child, not quite unde...

    This is an absolutely amazing read! It makes you think and takes you to a very troubled time in history. I had the pleasure of listening to the author speak which left me in awe. I recommend this book for everyone.
  • Susan Jackson
    I really liked this book, but then I met the author and it was more personal for me. Unbelievable story of a set of twins that Dr. Mengele experimented on.
  • Ann Cross
    very tuoching story about the survivors of the holocaust
  • Karen
    Great book by a survivor of the Holocaust.
  • Carole Ann
    The author of this book, Evan Kor, started a holocaust museum in Terre Haute Indiana called CANDLES. Interesting woman.
  • Christie Sinclair
    This was a difficult book to read because of the horrors of Auschwitz. I admire Eva Kor so much! She was strong when she needed to be. And later she was able to forgive the Nazis. Amazing!!!
  • Rachel Winkelman
    I feel bad wanting to give it less than three stars because the things the author had to relive to write it are horrendous. However, I had a really tough time wanting to finish this once I had started because of the writing style and lack of editing. This first part is about her life before the war and the second part reads like a police report. She doesn’t have much information about what was actually happening during the experiments that she ...

    After coming across an article written by Kor I was compelled to read her memoir. Although the editing in this book wasn't perfect (why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5), her story, like all survivors, is powerful. I was unaware of "Dr" Josef Mengele's horrific experiments in the camps. It amazes me that any children survived at all. Kor's perspective is unique, as she was eight years-old at the time. I appreciated also learning about her life befo...

    A re-telling of what life was like in Auschwitz from a survivor of the concentration camp and lab experiments of Dr. Mengele. This is a depressing read as it is about one of history's darkest events. Eva Mozes Kor is very inspiring, and her story of survival is simply amazing. I brought this book after hearing her lecture about her experiences.
  • Sara Mcinerney
    Was inspired to read this book after I found out Eva was coming to Ball State. I really enjoyed reading about her experiences from a 10-year-olds perspective. She covers her life before Auschwitz, during and after. Would recommend to anyone interested in the Holocaust.
