The Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center and JCC Mid Westchester are pleased to present “Book Talk: Something Beautiful Happened: A Story of Survival and Courage in the Face of Evil,” with Yvette Manessis Corporon, moderated by Steve Goldberg, co-educational director of the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center.

This book talk will take place on January 24 at 7:30 p.m. at the JCC Mid Westchester.

Yvette Manessis Corporon grew up listening to her grandmother’s stories about how people on her native Greek island hid a Jewish family from the Nazis. The story stayed with Yvette and she later found the survivor’s descendants in Israel. Their reunion was cut short by her cousin’s child being gunned down by a Neo-Nazi at the JCC of Kansas.

Manessis Corporon is a New Rochelle native, three-time Emmy Award winning writer and producer.

The JCC Mid Westchester is located at 999 Wilmot Road, Scarsdale, NY 10583. Tickets are $20. Please call 914-472-3300 for more information. To purchase tickets,  go to
