Wednesday, Dr. Edith Eva Eger speaks at Colorado Mountain College about healing from trauma.

Dr. Eger is a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp and is one of a dwindling number of Holocaust survivors alive today. 

 She was a teenager in Hungary in 1944 when Nazi soldiers broke into the home she shared with her sister Magda and their parents and took them to Auschwitz in Poland.  

Her book “The Choice: Embrace the Possible,” tells her story of recovery and forgiveness.
