Join us on the evening of January 31 as Dr. Irene Butter tells of her experiences during the Holocaust and her work for social justice. Dr. Butter was born in Berlin, Germany, and grew up as a Jewish child in Nazi-occupied Europe. She survived two concentration camps, including Bergen-Belsen, where she
met Anne Frank. She came to the United States in 1945 and is a Professor Emerita of Public Health at the University of Michigan, where she co-founded the Raoul Wallenberg Medal & Lecture series. Dr. Butter is also a co-founder of Zeitouna, an Arab-Jewish women’s dialogue group in Ann Arbor, and her memoir, Shores Beyond Shores, from Holocaust to Hope, has recently been published.
