Holocaust speaker to recount story

From staff reports

By telling a true story of love and survival, Michael Korenblit is hoping to put a human face to the Holocaust from World War II.

Korenblit, a lecturer, educator and author, will present "Until We Meet Again" at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Frank W. Bridges Theatre at Riverland Community College in Austin.

Korenblit’s presentation will tie the past to present-day issues, such as events in Bosnia, Kosovo and Nigeria as well as school shootings and bullying.

A 1973 graduate of the University of Oklahoma, Korenblit is president and cofounder of the Respect Diversity Foundation and a former producer of an Ace Award-winning public-affairs series as well as numerous honored documentaries.


Prior to returning to Oklahoma in 1992, Korenblit worked for 19 years for the Close Up Foundation, an educational organization in Washington, D.C.

His presentation "Until We Meet Again" was selected for the 1996 volume of Reading Group Choices.

The Riverland Global Education committee and diversity training department is sponsoring the event with funding in part by Riverland’s foundation and a grant from the Otto Bremer Foundation.
