A Call to Action
An account of Irene Butter's time as a child taken to Bergen-Belsen alongside her family and fellow prisoner Anne Frank. After survival, relatives forbade her to talk about the experience. The overall message of the story emphasises the power of empathy for others during harrowing circumstances.

She is a frequent and favored inspirational speaker, talking about her experience during World War II and stressing the importance of "never a bystander" and that "one person can make a difference." Irene is a co-founder of Zeitouna, an organization of Jewish and Arab women working for peace, and a founder of the Raoul Wallenberg Project at University of Michigan.
