FORGIVING DR. MENGELE
A documentary film by Bob Hercules and Cheri Pugh
Can you forgive but not forget? This is the central question of a bold and thought provoking documentary about Eva Mozes Kor, an Auschwitz survivor who has healed herself by forgiving those who perpetrated violence against her.
Eva and her twin sister, Miriam, were victims of Nazi doctor Josef Mengele’s cruel genetic experiments—an experience that would haunt them their entire lives. The film follows Eva’s metamorphosis from embittered survivor to tireless advocate for reconciliation.
This is your opportunity to see this award winning film and meet the woman who inspired the movie!
Come for a special screening of the movie followed by a discussion with Eva Mozes Kor.

The full film may currently only be seen at film festivals.
Sudanese elections are scheduled for April 11-13. There is the possibility of the outbreak of violence around the elections, due to the illegitimate manner in which they are being conducted. We will discuss the activist response to the elections, including information on what YOU can do to help.
Finally, the meeting will include a discussion of genocide prevention and why it is in the interest of the United States to take a more proactive approach in this arena.
The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 13 at 5:30 PM at University Presbyterian Church, 300 Bushnell, San Antonio.
