Mrs. 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 United States in 1945. Since the late 1980s, she has been teaching students about the Holocaust and the lessons she learned during those traumatic years. She continues to travel the country and speak about the Holocaust and her recently-published memoir, Shores Beyond Shores: From Holocaust to Hope.
