Eva Milar Vogel was born to two Auschwitz survivors, Dr. Andrej Milar-Muller and Ruth Milarova (nee Hermanstadt) in Czechoslovakia. Eva immigrated to the US in 1969. She and her husband have two sons. Eva received her PhD in Chemistry and was elected a Fellow of The American Ceramic Society. Dr. Vogel is featured in the book Successful Women Ceramic and Glass Scientists and Engineers: 100 Inspirational Profiles, (Wiley 2016).
After 35 years working in glass and ceramic research, she retired from Bell Labs at Murray Hill, NJ as a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff. Eva now focuses her energy on helping to educate students and the general public about the Holocaust by talking about her parents’ experiences. In her public presentations, she discusses how we can learn from history to prevent repeating the horrors inflicted on her family. Eva also spends time with survivors, helping them to live with their memories and to bear witness to their stories.
