Featured Speaker ~ Eva Mozes Kor

Recipient of the 2017 Sachem award, the highest honor in the state of Indiana, Eva Mozes Kor is a survivor of the Holocaust, a forgiveness advocate, and a revered public speaker. With the driving message of “never give up” in mind, she has emerged through a life filled with trauma as a brilliant example of the power of the human spirit to overcome. Kor’s account illustrates the dangers of hate and the consequences of allowing prejudice to persist, unchecked, in others.
