“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 Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression (winner of the 2001 National Book Award for Nonfiction). 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.

Free; advance registration recommended
