901 Rte. 10, Whippany

Join us and members of the local Greek community to hear Yvette Manessis Corporon, author of Something Beautiful Happened. Yvette will share the amazing story of how her grandmother helped hide a Jewish family on a Greek island during World War II. And how, in a twist of fate, tracking down the descendants of the Jewish family 70 years later, helped her understand hardship, forgiveness, and the power of kindness as her own family faced tragedy.
