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 is co-sponsored with Jewish Family Service.
