Michael Korenblit is co-author of UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN, A True Story of Love and Survival in the Holocaust. This is the true story of his parents, Manya and Meyer Korenblit, who are Holocaust survivors. He speaks to students, throughout the United States, about the lessons of the Holocaust and how it relates to issues of today.
In 1942 in a small town in Poland, 17-year-old Manya goes in hiding with her sweetheart, Meyer, also 17, & his family. For three long years, Manya & Meyer endure the loss of parents & siblings, separation from each other, & the horrors of labor /concentration / extermination camps, including Auschwitz - but are helped at key points by courageous Polish Catholics & are constantly sustained by their faith & their love for each other.
Co-authored by their son Michael, "Until We Meet Again" has been praised by historians for its vivid portrayal of the times, by teachers for its educational significance & by all readers for its absorbing & inspiring narrative.
Michael Berenbaum of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum says, "Korenblit & Janger show that whoever retells the story of one person recovers an entire world, in all its complexity & drama... One can only admire this well-written work of filial devotion."

The United Nations works to promote and develop educational programs to transmit the memory of the Holocaust to future generations so as to prevent genocide from ever occurring again. In particular, UNESCO -- the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization -- plays a special role in promoting Holocaust education around the world.
