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.
