Critic Reviews for Forgiving Dr. Mengele
It's hard to know whether to be impressed or appalled by Eva Mozes Kor, the Holocaust survivor in Bob Hercules and Cheri Pugh's fascinating documentary.
This tale of one survivor determined not to let those horrific experiences define her is moving enough to make Forgiving Dr. Mengele a worthy addition to the ever-growing canon of Holocaust-related films.
For a film about death-camp survivors Forgiving Dr. Mengele is surprisingly uplifting and, at times, even lighthearted.
This moving film explores the trauma of a Holocaust survivor with rare complexity.
The film is mostly dry and uninspired. An extraordinary woman like Eva Kor deserves a less ordinary biography.
Audience Reviews for Forgiving Dr. Mengele
It's very honorable that Eva forgives her German perpetrators for the medical experiments done on her and her twin sister; but very, very off putting the way she reacts to the Palestinians sharing their stories of violence with/by Israelis.
Very intriguing documentary asks the question. . .What is forgiveness? An Auschwitz torture survivor, Eva Mozes Kor, has decided in her own heart that the only way to self-healing was to let go of any hate or resentment she had toward her Nazi captors in spite of it being the contrary opinion opposed to many other survivors. A powerful and inspiring woman and documentary that had me in tears at times.
Fantastic job of storytelling. A LOT of work and writing skill went into this. This one is worth owning and watching often. It is also worth a trip to Terre Haute to meet this incredible woman; Eva Kor has the best definition of forgiveness I've ever heard: "Whatever was done to me is no longer causing me such pain that I cannot be the person I want to be."
