The Holocaust Teacher Institute at the University of Miami, School of Education & Human Development is proud to announce the Leslie and Susan Gonda (Goldschmied) Foundation Holocaust/Jewish themed Sunday Salon Series.

Something Beautiful Happened: A Virtual Evening with Author & Producer Yvette Manessis Corporon in conversation with Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff.

Seventy years after her Greek Orthodox grandmother helped hide a Jewish family on a Greek island during the Holocaust, her granddaughter, Yvette, sets out to track down the Jewish family’s descendants and discovers a new way to understand tragedy, forgiveness, and the power of kindness.

Yvette Manessis Corporon, today a famous TV producer, grew up listening to her grandmother’s stories about how the people of the small Greek island, named Erikousa, hid a Jewish family from the Nazis during the Holocaust.

Years later, Yvette couldn’t get the story of the Jewish tailor out of her head. She decided to track down the man’s descendants and eventually found them in Israel.

Don’t miss this riveting history and its powerful unexpected ending!
