Michael Korenblit


Michael Korenblit is president and co-founder of the Respect Diversity Foundation. Prior to moving back to Oklahoma in 1992, Korenblit worked 19 years for the Close Up Foundation, an educational organization in Washington, D.C. He held a number of positions, including Program Instructor, where he taught students and teachers about the governmental process and domestic and foreign policy issues. He also directed Close Up’s television and video department, where he produced television programs, which aired on the Cable Satellite Public Affairs network.

Korenblit is co-author of Until We Meet Again, the true story of love and survival in the Holocaust. He takes his audiences on a journey through time to Hrubieszow, a town in Poland, during the late 1930’s and 1940’s. He shares the stories of two families and the impact of the war on their lives. Korenblit's two main characters are Manya and Meyer, his parents. Although only 17, Manya and Meyer’s courage, faith, and love for each other were to sustain them though the loss of parents and siblings, constant fear and harsh conditions of hiding, separation from each other for two years, and numerous concentration, and death camps. Their survival was one miracle; meeting again was a second. Then there was a third.
