UNTILL WE MEET AGAIN
I am writing about the book, Until We Meet Again. This book is written by two people, Michael KorenBlit and Kathleen Jager. This is a true story about the Holocaust.
This story includes both love and the hope to survival. In the beginning, the Korenblit family goes in to hiding in a hidden shelter under a haystack. They feared after a few months they weren't safe and decided to move out. They temporally stayed in a family friend's home
Later Meyer the third oldest out of six, hear German soldiers asking Jews to come out of hiding to come and work for them. Meyer takes up there offer and goes to work doing various jobs and lives very well. He also takes his girlfriend with him that was hiding with him in the hideout. After the Germans were finished with the Jews and no longer needed them they were shipped off to concentration camps. They later were transported to other camps across Europe.
Until We Meet Again is written by the son of two Holocaust survivors. As he grew up his parents didn't discuss their experience with him because they perceived he didn't want to hear about it, while he didn't bring it up because he was afraid they didn't want to talk about it. The writing of the book was cathartic for all three of them.
It is the true story of the miraculous survival of two Polish Jews who were boyfriend and girlfriend. Although they start off in the same hiding spot and move on to the same ghetto they eventually become separated and spend time in many different concentration camps, sometimes the same ones but never at the same time. Their love for each other is the thread to which they cling throughout the grueling years of captivity. It is a wonderfully uplifting tale of hope and love.
I did not give it 5 stars simply because there are some even better books available: Shindler's List comes to mind. The writing gets a tiny bit repetitive...
Though the subject matter is vile the story that is told is incredible!! Everyone should read this book. I think it should be one of the required reads for kids in school, they must know what happened during the Holocaust and benefit from reading this story. I am not Jewish, but I cried while reading the intro...this book is just that powerful, magnificent, and is a brilliantly told story. You MUST buy this and read it.
