Practically all species of rhino around the world are now endangered, their numbers depleted by poachers who then sell their horns on the lucrative black market. Demand is especially high in China and Vietnam, where rhino horns are used for medicinal purposes. A biotech team in the US, however, is now making bioengineered replicas of horns with a 3D printer that are visually and genetically identical to the real thing. They hope to flood the market with their cut-price versions, and put the poachers out of business. Opinion is divided over whether the concept will actually work.

Eva Kor was 10 when she and her family stepped off the train in Auschwitz in the fall of 1944. Minutes later an SS officer took her and her twin sister, Miriam, away from their mother, father and two older sisters. The twins never saw the others again. Awaiting the girls was Josef Mengele, "the Angel of Death" who performed unspeakably sadistic experiments on roughly 1,500 sets of twins. When the Soviet army liberated Auschwitz on Jan. 27, 1945, Eva and Miriam were among the fewer than 200 survivors of Mengele's atrocities. Kor talks about her ordeal at the hands of Mengele and her decision to forgive. Recorded on 05/05/2016.
