Eva Kor presents a very personal and extensive presentation to visitors of all ages. She knows how to reach children and spends a great amount of time answering questions. Very memorable.

Call them to verify (812.234.7881 or visit their website candlesholocaustmuseum. org) but I was there on a Saturday, so I’d say open.
