Selected time for exhibition entry

“Enemies are people whose story you haven't heard,” says Dr. Irene Hasenberg Butter, a survivor of two concentration camps who has dedicated her life to Holocaust education. Irene will share her story, in a conversation with Dr. Andrew Solomon, author of Far From the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity, and the National Book Award-winning The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression. The two will share insights on selfhood, trauma, and navigating change gleaned from Butter’s childhood in Nazi-occupied Europe and Solomon’s research on the formation of self within different family frameworks.
