Irene Hasenberg Butter, child Holocaust survivor and professor emerita of public health at the University of Michigan, will speak about her experiences during World War II.

Irene Butter’s memoir, "Shores Beyond Shores,” is an account of how the heart keeps its common humanity in the most inhumane and turbulent of times. Irene’s hard-earned lessons are a timeless inspiration.  Her message stresses the importance of “never being a bystander” and that one person can make a difference.

She will appear with her co-authors, Kris Holloway and John Bidwell. Cosponsored with the Rabin Chair Forum at George Washington University in commemoration of the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht (Night of the Broken Glass).
