This exhibition of letters sent by Nazi physician Josef Mengele to his wife, Irene, while he was stationed at Auschwitz, was planned in conjunction with Holocaust survivor Eva Kor's May 5 visit to UCSB. Mengele performed a wide range of gruesome and lethal experiments using Jewish and Roma twins, including Kor and her twin sister, Miriam. Pieces were on loan from the Florence and Laurence Spungen Family Foundation.
