An Evening with Irene Butter
Wednesday, February 27 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
YDL is honored to welcome Holocaust survivor, professor, and author Irene Butter. Dr. Butter was born in Berlin and grew up as a Jewish child in Nazi-occupied Europe. A survivor of two concentration camps, she came to the US in 1945. Her memoir, Shores Beyond Shores, details her journey during the Holocaust and explores how the heart keeps its humanity during inhumane times. Today, Dr. Butter continues her work for human rights and standing up against hatred, bullying, oppression, and discrimination. For years, Dr. Butter has inspired students from across the country with her message of the importance of caring for one another, regardless of our color, religion, or race.
