TEHRAN CHILDREN

A Holocaust Refugee Odyssey

by Dekel, Mikhal

The extraordinary true story of Polish-Jewish child refugees who escaped the Nazis and found refuge in Iran.

Rather than perish in Nazi-occupied Poland, more than a million Jews escaped east to the Soviet Union. There they suffered extreme deprivation in Siberian gulags and then, once "liberated," journeyed to the Soviet Central Asian Republics. The majority of Polish Jews who survived the Nazis outlived the war in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan; some of them continued on to Iran. The story of their suffering, both those who died and those who survived, has rarely been told.

Mikhal Dekel is professor of English at City College of New York and the CUNY Graduate Center.
