Beth Israel will be showing the short film, Never a Bystander directed by Evelyn Neuhaus. Never a Bystander is a short documentary that introduces audiences to Irene Butter, a Holocaust survivor with a remarkable capacity to reframe the trauma she endured as a child growing up in Nazi Germany. Throughout the film, Butter is warmly embraced as she takes her story to school children. Butter's uplifting message and her impact on young people moves viewers to compassion, forgiveness, and empowered action. Both Irene and Evelyn will make remarks afterwords, and Irene will preform a brief reading from her memoir after the showing.
