"Until We Meet Again" reads like a novel, yet tells the compelling true story of two families decimated by the Holocaust. 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 concentration 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 usefulness, & 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."

This book should be required reading of all high school students in the U.S. and other English-speaking countries. Its narrative format reads like a novel, but is even more compelling because it is a true story. This is easily the best-written narrative of the era I've read, and I stayed up until after midnight each night because I could not put it down despite being exhausted from weeks-long military exercises I was conducting while reading it. I had a hard time complaining about my living conditions and sparse food in comparison, to say the least.
In summary, this book gives the reader a personal view of what the holocaust was actually like, and how it impacted individuals and families. Simply riveting.
"Until We Meet Again" is written like a novel and as I read it, it was as if I was right there with them. My heart rate would increase and I would have to have a Kleenex near-by. Awesome book! WE CAN NEVER FORGET this HORRIBLE chapter in human history!! I think all high school students should read it! I wish their son would follow up this book with a story of coming to the US and their life here as Americans. An AWESOME story that everyone should read!!!
If anyone wonders why WWII had to be fought, they should read this book. It is the story of evil vs. good and how that struggle affects the lives of innocent people who only longed to live their lives freely. The human spirit strives to survive and miracles really do happen, though some might call it coincidence!
