Join Ann Curry for a new season of dramatic reunions of people whose lives crossed at pivotal moments. Beginning November 13, 2018, view history through their eyes and hear stories of heroism, hope and the forging of unbreakable bonds.
This season, We’ll Meet Again travels across the country and around the world, once again helping people find that special someone whose actions changed the course of their lives, searching for clues in marriage records and war and immigration documents, and combing archives to reunite those separated by time and distance.
Featured are stories of a Cuban-American who escaped during the 1980 Mariel Boatlift and never forgot the brave skipper who piloted him to a new life in the U.S.; a woman looking for the best friend whose family shielded her during the great Alaskan earthquake of 1964; two Vietnam veterans, one longing to reconnect with the helicopter pilot who rescued him from enemy fire, the other wanting to thank the doctor who saved his leg; and a Holocaust survivor hoping to discover what happened to a fellow survivor he befriended in a displaced persons camp.
