‘Something Beautiful Happened’ Is the Unbelievable Journey of a Woman Searching for the Family Her Grandmother Helped in WWII

“Extra" Senior Producer Yvette Manessis Corporon grew up listening to her Greek grandmother’s stories about the Jewish family she hid, and ultimately helped save from the Nazis during WWII. Yvette’s tireless search for the descendants of that family sparked an unbelievable journey that led to a joyful reunion, followed by devastating loss.

Yvette eloquently writes about both in her new book, “Something Beautiful Happened,” a powerful testament to what is possible when courage and love overcome fear and hate. The story will soon be told in a feature-length documentary film.
