MyHeritage was featured yesterday on a popular Israeli TV show, HaTsinor. Their segment highlights the important work MyHeritage does to help people discover their long-lost relatives and to reunite families.
It includes coverage of the special reunion that MyHeritage helped organize on the Greek island of Ereikoussa with author Yvette Manessis-Corporon and the Hassid family. During WWII, residents of the small island risked their lives to save a Jewish tailor’s family from the Nazis. Yvette's grandmother was one of those brave people, and often spoke about Savvas (the tailor) and his family. After a long search, MyHeritage was instrumental in helping Yvette connect with the tailor's descendants, the Hassid family.
