Irene Butter, a Holocaust survivor and longtime peace activist and a UM emerita professor of public health, is the co-founder of the Raoul Wallenberg Medal and Lecture at UM and co-founder of Zeitouna, an Arab-Jewish women’s dialogue group in Ann Arbor.

Her first-person memoir, "Shores Beyond Shores", is an account of how the heart keeps its common humanity in the most inhumane and turbulent of times. Ms. Butter will share her life experiences. She grew up as a Jewish child in Nazi-occupied Europe and survived two concentration camps.

“I didn’t ask to go through the Holocaust, but I was saved through the miracles of luck and the love and determination of my Pappi. I owe it to him and everybody who suffered to talk about what I learned because suffering never ends, so our work must continue,” Ms. Butter said. Her book will be available for purchase.

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute membership is not required to attend this event.
