CANDLES is an acronym for Children of Auschwitz Nazi Deadly Lab Experiments Survivors. CANDLES was founded in 1995 by Eva Mozes Kor who, as a twin, survived the genetic experiments of Dr. Josef Mengele in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp. The CANDLES Museum is dedicated to telling the story of the Holocaust and the stories of the children who endured experiments at Auschwitz and other Nazi camps.
