Something Beautiful Happened: A Story of Survival, Faith and Courage in the Face of Evil


  • Thursday, January 18

  • Fee: $10

Seventy years after her grandmother helped hide a Jewish family on a Greek island during World War II, Yvette Corporon sets out to track down their descendants – and discovers a new way to understand tragedy, forgiveness and the power of kindness.  In beautifully told interweaving storylines, the past and present come together in a nuanced, heartfelt story about the power of faith, the importance of kindness, and the courage to stand up for what’s right in the face of evil.

Yvette Corporon is a three-time Emmy Award winning writer, author and producer.  She has received the Silurian Award for Excellence in Journalism and the NYC Council & Comptroller’s Award for Greek Heritage & Culture.

 Event co-sponsored by Jewish Family Service.
