Award winning journalist and New Rochelle native, Yvette Manessis Corporon set out to find the Jewish family her Greek grandmother saved from the Nazis. After years of searching, Yvette finally finds them. But their joyful reunion is cut short when days later, two members of Yvette’s own family are murdered by a Neo-Nazi at a JCC in Kansas. Lessons learned from the survivors of the past help Yvette and her family discover new ways to understand forgiveness and the power of kindness.
