Eh.

This was an okay read, not for everyone. I found myself having to push through but some parts made it worth it.

Surviving Through Love

"Until We Meet Again" by Michael Korenblit and Kathleen Janger, is by far one of the best Holocaust stories I have ever read (which is really saying something because I am Jewish and have heard/read many stories). This nonfiction novel is about the love and survival of Manya Nagelsztajn and Meyer Korenblit in the Holocaust. The story begins at the beginning of the Holocaust where Manya and Meyer lived in Hrubiezow, Poland. The story later develops and takes Manya and Meyer into different concentration camps in Poland. As Manya parted from her parents forever Manya's mother said, "`Maybe one of us will survive'...Well, that was just what happened. Manya was the lone survivor. She resolved that although her family was dead, their faces and her memories of them would live forever inside her heart" (Page 294-295). This novel describes the themes about kindness, equality, racism, determination, survival, hope, and love. In this novel it explains how love can be that tiny piece of hope that makes each day worth living (or trying to live) for. An example is when Meyer said to himself, "There was only one thing he must do: stay alive, so that he could be with her again" (page 216). Author, Michael Korenblit, is Manya and Meyer's son. His friend is Kathleen Janger and together they helped Manya and Meyer to release the horrors of their past, to share with the world. During the composition of this novel, Michael and Kathleen come across the name of Manya's brother Chaim in a directory of England. The reunion of Chaim and Manya and Meyer was rejoiced, because for about thirty years they each thought the other was dead. Michael and Kathleen's writing style is quick and to the point. They are telling the story, not to explain to the reader what the Holocaust was, but to tell Manya and Meyer's story. This makes it more intriguing than a textbook version of the Holocaust, "Hitler gained power in Germany as an absolute ruler...the Nazi's killed over six million Jews..." The authors, although tell a story, aren't very descriptive, which is probably due to the fact that they are telling the story second hand. In my opinion, this is one of the best stories I've ever read. I have heard stories of members from my synagogue, I've seen videos, and I've seen plays about the Holocaust, but by far, this is one of the stories that I've been most interested in. I would not call myself a good reader, I'm far from it, I rarely read outside of school, but this story was entrancing, I had to continue reading and I would not put it down. One of the main reasons why I enjoyed this story so much was because it was a love story as well as a survival story. These two people went through almost every type of Holocaust story I've ever heard of. They went into hiding when people were being deported, they worked in the ghetto, they were deported, they went to work camps as well as death camps, and managed to survive all of it. That concept was incredible. They sacri

Unusally Interesting

wow is all i can say for this book. i'm not much of a reader but this book i couldn't put down. it's a very descriptive book but doesn't lose you halfway through it. i highly recommend it to anybody (teenagers especially). trust me, the books starts great and ends great!

The best of the Holocaust stories

"Until We Meet Again" was a wonderful, true Holocaust story that, in my opinion, ties with "Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl" as the best Holocaust books.When two Polish Jews, Meyer and Manya, both 17, and their families decide to go into hiding from the Nazis, there troubles are just beginning. Manya and her 14-year-old brother, Chaim, decide to leave her family's dangerous hideout and go with her boyfriend, Meyer. Together, they go through various hiding places and worsening concentration camps all over Europe. Trying to survive day by day, they often wonder if they will ever be free again. Meyer and Manya survive, however, with their great faith and love for each other - but how? Will they ever see their families again? Can they ever be happy... and free?This was a great, inspirational story, written by the couple's son. It can be read and enjoyed by a large age group, anywhere from middle schoolers, teens, and adults. It really helped me to see the true horror of the war, and I would highly recommend it!

Well-written, Important Historical Story

This true story of young love and survival during the holocaust is extrememly well-written. It is exciting, sad, triumphant, horrific, almost unbelieveable at times (as the true story is all of these things!) I was very impressed with the quality of the writing, and believe that this story should be read and remembered throughout the ages.
