Surviving the Angel of Death: The True Story of a Mengele Twin in Auschwitz

by Eva Kor and Lisa Rojany Buccieri

Eva Mozes Kor was ten years old when she arrived in Auschwitz. While her parents and two older sisters were taken to the gas chamber, she and her twin, Mirriam, were herded into the care of the man known as the Angel of Death, Dr. Joseph Mengele. Mengele’s twins were subjected to sadistic medical experiments and forced to fight daily for their own survival. In a narrative told with emotion and restraint, readers will learn of a child’s endurance and survival in the face of truly extraordinary evil.
