It took Yvette Manessis Corporon nearly seven years to track down the Jewish family her grandmother saved from the Nazis. But in a tragic twist of fate, days after the joyful reunion, two members of her extended family were murdered when a neo-Nazi opened fire at a local Jewish community center. Corporon, who chronicled the emotional story in the book “Something Beautiful Happened,” sits down with TODAY’s Megyn Kelly along with Mindy Corporon, whose 14-year-old son and father were killed in the shooting.
